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.

Got this in an email and wanted to share...

I Believe... That just because two people argue, It doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, It doesn't mean they do love each other.
I Believe...That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I Believe....That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
I Believe...That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
I Believe... That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life. The same can be said for redemption.
I Believe....That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I Believe....That we are responsible for what We do, no matter how we feel.
I Believe...That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I Believe... That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs
 to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I Believe....That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.
I Believe... That sometimes when I'm angry  I have the right to be angry, But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
I Believe....That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many  birthdays you've celebrated.
I Believe....That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others. Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I Believe...That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.
I Believe....That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
But, we are responsible for who we become.
I Believe...That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life Forever.
I Believe....Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
I Believe...That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
I Believe...That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you-you will find the strength to help.
I Believe...That credentials on the wall do not make you a credible human being.
I Believe... That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.
I Believe...That you should send this to all of the people that you believe in...I just did.
