Linda Smith

Joined 3 years ago from USA. Last activity 2 hours ago.

Hello! My name is Linda Smith. My photo is Lucy. Lucy is a min pin rescue that I got from her owner who could no longer keep her.

I know the battles, I know the war that the disabled and their loved ones fight, including loved ones who are the caregivers. I took care of my fiance, Michael at home for over 2 years, until his death.

I have a variety of subjects that I write about from home remodeling ideas to gift ideas.

Welcome Fellow Writers from Squidoo!

I am a freelance writer, an affiliate marketer. 

My Website: http://infantstotoddlers.com

I also have a variety of interests. You can find more articles at


I am also a mother and an advocate for the rights of adoptees, and an advocate against the big business of adoption whether it be private, through a private agency, or through the state system.  I hope to eductate the public so that they understand that adoption is not the answer to a temporary problem, that it harms both mother and child, a harm that is lifelong. The adoption industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that feeds offf of poor, single mothers who need help, not to be coerced  in any way to give up their child.
