It is with much surprise that I have learned that this blog, Military Mom at Home is a finalist in the Canadian Blog Awards in the category of Top Military Blogs of 2007.
My main objective with this blog has been and is to offer support and information to friends and families of soldiers serving, preparing to serve and those who have returned - (a shoulder to lean on.)

So, I had to look and found that votes are still being still being taken on Round 2. If you're interested in placing a vote for any blog, click on this link on WordPress . This gives you a chance to see links to other military blogs offered to you as well.
