i love this hug

(2/2) “It’s very difficult to talk about adoption on the Internet. No matter what you say, somebody will say the opposite. We adopted Axel last January. He had spent three years in the orphanage. The staff loved him and were desperate to find him a family. We were the only ones on the list for an older child. We knew it was going to be difficult. I had read a lot of literature on the difficulties of overcoming early neglect. And we’re making progress. We’re teaching him that our home is a permanent home. We are learning that touch is a good thing. We are learning that hugs can make you feel better. And I’m learning to not put so much pressure on myself. At first we felt so much pressure to love him. It would hurt me when he didn’t want to be hugged. I wanted to immediately love him as much as our biological son. And I felt guilty because it wasn’t happening right away. But then I stopped pressuring myself. My husband and I decided to focus on basics. We focused on providing food, shelter, and education. And once we stopped pressuring ourselves to feel a certain way, we discovered that we already loved him quite a bit. It’s a rollercoaster. But I feel like we’re heading up. Adopting an older child is difficult, but every child is difficult. My biological child was difficult. Only this time, after several months, I’m sleeping through the night, my boobs don’t hurt, and I don’t smell like diapers. So I feel like I should be doing a victory dance.”

Hold on Hun, We’re Gonna Bunny-Hug (pt1)

“I’m not cruisin’ for a love connection,” she warns him with pursed lips. He still has her pinned to the door, one leg thrown around his waist as they grind into each other ever so often.

James doesn’t miss a step, just drags his teeth over her pulse and says, “Good. Me either.”

or, ‘I slept with you the other day and I didn’t know we had a mutual friend and now we’re sitting across each other for brunch and it’s awkward'

The pub is raucous tonight. It seems like everyone and their mum decided to hit up the Three Broomsticks, and Rosmerta only had time to sling their drinks across the counter before hustling off to deal with another round of patrons. It just errs on the side of uncomfortable; the close packed bodies, the almost deafening levels of chatter, the slowly building humidity that leaves his skin damp, even after he rolled up the sleeves of his flannel in an attempt to cool down.

It’s a bit chaotic, but then again, he thrives off of chaos. At least, that’s what he says after watching some bloke spill his drink on a girl in an attempt to feel her up, only to receive a punch to the jaw. It results in a minor scuffle and he just sits off to the side observing it. It reminds him of an Andy Warhol painting for some reason; just a blur of colour and movement.

James Potter is not good at flip cup.

Or, more accurately, he’s not good at this blaspheme of flip cup that Sirius came up with. He’s making them chug a bitter stout instead of beer, and James grimaces the whole way through, costing him and Remus significant time.

He gives up after the third round of losing- he doesn’t hate himself that much, plus he’s sure that if he doesn’t wash down the taste with something else, his tastebuds would never forgive him- and Sirius pats him on the back.

“Oh don’t be sad, Prongs,” he says, pinching his cheeks.

James bats his hands away. “You’re a sadistic bastard.”

“Funny, that’s what my mum used to call me growing up.”

HI! I’m Buster, and I’m not your AVERAGE cat!

I was living the outdoor life, when I was attacked by a vicious beast and ended up at the Howard County Cat Club in Columbia, Maryland. And WOW, this place is sure swanky!

Since life is clearly on an upward swing for me, it’s obvious the next step is a loving home! I’m a great cat, and I give AWESOME hugs! I also really like my feather dancer toy, and would enjoy sharing my life with some cat buddies, or even a friendly dog!

I still like the great outdoors, so a home with some safe outdoor access would be amazing. (Three-story catio, anyone?)

If you’d like to know more, or set u a meeting, just holler up my peeps at 410-730-3679!

And if you can’t adopt me, you know what’s almost as amazing? REBLOGGING ME!

Can’t wait to love ya.


Namjoon as a MLM Boyfriend

i wanna do a series like this aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!! 

i’ve been inspired by the lovely @queerbbangtan <3

Jungkook | Namjoon

- museum dates !!!!!!!!!!!!

- he would have his arm around your waist as often as he could on dates, without being overbearing of course

- namjoon would just love taking you out and showing you off tbh 

- “the whole world should know how much i love you!”

- hand holding in public. a must

- that would probably be extent of your PDA tho 

- shy joonie wouldn’t want too much attention on you guys, considering people were already staring because you were two guys holding hands 

- as soon as you two were in a friend’s house or alone, he’d enter extremely cuddly and needy mode

- back hugs !!!!!!!!!!! i’m weeping 

- he’d love just randomly coming up behind you and wrapping his arms around your waist and resting his head on your shoulder, maybe even giving a few gentle kisses to your neck

-  he would be really tough and stern with everyone but when it came to you he just   s  o f  t 

- his favourite pet name for you would be baby boy …. :’)

- everything you did and said turned him so mushy and gay and adorable 

- speaking of gay 

- PRIDE EVENTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- namjoon would fucking love going to pride with you

- this is the one place where he felt good/safe doing PDA 


- he’d end up buying one of the gay flags for himself and also your sexuality’s flag (gay, bi, pan, asexual, etc)

- you’d both wear them as capes and run around all day having the best time ever 

- he would honestly put so much effort into your relationship because he knew how hard it was on the both of you when he left for promos or tour

- skype dates !

- if he was feeling really stressed, you’d just sit an ramble softly to him, and he’d eventually fall asleep to the soothing sound of your voice 

- when he got back home,,,,,, CUDDLES

- namjoon would always shotgun being the big spoon

- he’d love it when your back was right up against his chest, your fingers interlaced in front of your stomach, one of his legs up and over your waist

- brb i’m crying 

- if you were stressed/sad, he’d stroke your side gently while kissing your head, quietly murmuring how much he loved you

- he would just be the best ok?????

- he could always count on you and vice versa, always having each other’s backs and knowing you loved each other without even having to say it 

well that was emotional ,

anyways let me know what member u want me to do next!

- angus 

Managing a big community!

I think the only bad thing about managing a big community is when people want to start drama or spread lies about your community. Specially when other community harass you!

It’s not good at all and at least with me, my mental health can’t deal with this so well! But all the rest… It’s so good! I love taking care of people and helping everyone! And you guys make me so happy!

I think I can say that I’m proud of this community and managing Teenietots is the best thing ever! All babies and carers and sibs here are amazing and I love you all!

Can I have a hug too? Sometimes mommy needs love too!! I’m kinda having a hard time and all the harassment I get it’s not really nice, my borderline ass can’t deal with that, hehe. Sorry about the borderline ass XD

i absolutely love kanan and ezra’s relationship i love how much they obviously care about each other especially in season 1 they dont try and hide that at all its not a traditional more macho student and teacher bond they GENUINELY CARE FOR AND LOVE EACH OTHER and dont try and hide that for the sake of the whole Real Men Dont Cry Over Each Other trope that happens so much especially in scifi and i LOVE it i love space dad and his space son so much i love all their visible anguish when the other is in trouble and i love their hugs and how gently kanan talks to him in the first season i LOVE them

I love that video of Billie hugging the little girl and signing her jacket because there are grown men and children crying and the woman behind the camera sounds like she might be dying and imagine being so loved that your very presence causes people you’ve never met before to emotionally collapse
