  1. Ooh! A middle acrostic! I've always wanted to try one of these. You inspire me...again!

  2. I have not seen this form before, I don't think. I love GOTCHA. Wonderful and wonderful story about your beautiful daughter's journey to your family. Very touching. I am going to give it a go and see what I can come up with. I do love this.

    1. Yay, I'd love to see what you come up with for a middle acrostic, Janet Clare. To me, it opens up more possibilities. :)
