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.

OMG-What have I done???

You all know I love to rattle off my amazing self findings on this blog, but I was recently asked to guest blog for the awesome ladies over at Birthmothers4adoption.

Can you say AWESOME!!!?

You guys all know what a huge fan I am of the site, the founders, and all of the positive advocacy they do every day! If I am lucky, this will be the first appearance of many.

The topic of choice centered around healthy, natural self doubt that I have experienced in my journey. What an honor and a privilege to get to do this.

I let Desha pick the pictures and am still giggling at her selections from my Facebook albums.

Enjoy!!! (And feel free to leave comments...)

  1. You really do have a way with words! My favorite part of your post was "Just because it is not 'the norm' does not make it a bad thing." This statement sums up exactly what I've been coming to understand in the last couple of months. Adoption can be beautiful and wonderful even with all of the loss involved. Some really beautiful things can come from pain and suffering.

  2. lol i thought they went quite nicely with the paragraphs theyre next too! i had fun sorting thru all your ridiculously skinny gorgeous pics.
    cant wait to have you guest blog again, im gonna have to start thinking about another topic!!
