Welcome to the craziness that is my life!

This is my story in pieces. The good ones, the bad ones, and everything in between. It is messy and flawed...just like it's author. I am not a selfliss person...I am not an angel...I am a loud, opinionated, most of the time crazy, Mom. I write here the things I cannot discuss in my "day to day life". These views are my own, from my own journey. Adoption has changed my life forever, some for good, some not so good. If you don't agree with me, that's fine. It's not your story...it's mine. Consider it a manual on "How Not To Act/What Not To Do When You Are Pregnant and Considering Adoption". If you learn nothing else, learn to educate yourself to the long term affects on yourself, your family, and the child you chose to place.

Oh...and please, don't call me "bitter". I prefer the term "enlightened".

***DISCLAIMER-I don't speak for anyone but me...in this story or in life. It is here as an educational tool if anyone chooses to learn something. I appreciate comments always.***

P.S. Just because I don't actively blog doesn't mean I still don't LOVE comments. Yes, I still check them. I guess I would just rather hear YOUR thoughts, than share mine.

If you missed the story, start reading the "Posts of Some Significance" located directly underneath and to the right of this. That's the story in a nutshell.

If you did not use an agency or have your own lawyer, how did you find the adoptive couple?

The answer to this question always gets the biggest eye roll, but the answer is 100% true. I found them on Craigslist...lol.
I tried to go through profiles on the agency sites, but it all seemed so much like an overinflated, crazy expensive business. One night, while at work, I was looking on CL, and on a whim typed in "adoption" into the community search box, and there were multiple couples there with contact info. I contacted several with a very brief paragraph explaining my situation and waited for responses. I talked back and forth a few times with several couples, and the rest is history.
