An adoptive mama’s playlist

Around here, music tends to gravitate towards the likes of Laurie Berkener, Raffi, Elizabeth Mitchell… and the complete soundtrack of Disney’s “Frozen.” But there’s only so much “Let It Go” a gal can take, so the other day I passed over my iPhone to Mini with an offer of “I’ll let you DJ if you [...]
