We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

Disney's Princess and The Frog

FINALLY!!!!! Disney has come to their senses and are releasing a new film with a African American girl as the main character. I have avoided buying Disney Princess themed stuff for my daughter because it has always irritated me that there was not a African American princess. So I was excited to see that the dolls are already out and the movie trailer is being released for the film which will be in theaters in December. It is titled "The Princess and The Frog" and is unique in that it involved hand drawn animation as a alternative to all the new computer animated films. It is a comedy set in New Orleans. Now I am sure it is not completely historically accurate and there will be some controvery over Disney not getting it right. But it is a start. The website for the film is http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/princessandthefrog/

And my favorite (A little expensive but worth it) African American hair care line is marketing on the film and will have available for a limited time this fall a Princess and The Frog themed girls hair care line at http://www.carolsdaughter.com/display.do?ruleID=100396&utm_source=cheetah&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20090923-FREESCRUBMEMBERCHANCE
