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.

Change...One Person at a time.

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank



I ran across this post yesterday, at one of my favorite sites, Birthmothers 4 Adoption, and was so excited about this wonderful story that I couldn't help but want to pass it on. It truly showcases how "spur of the moments decisions" can really impact lives. How something small can become something so large in an instant. How miscommunication can destroy beautiful things, but how education can prompt us to right our wrongs.

On National Adoption Awareness day, I wrote a post about how even though there needs to be monstrous reform in the adoption world as we know it, ultimately we are all responsible for our own actions. Click Here! to read a living, breathing example of my point. The post is called "What I've learned about Birthmoms" and it is fantastic!!!!

This post moved me to tears...not because of my situation, or what I may want, but because it reassures me that if Angie can do it, than so can others out there in her position as an Adoptive parent.

Change can, and will happen...one person at a time.

***As a note of personal growth...since having my eyes opened to my "Coveting Problem", I have been working on it A LOT!!! I read this post, (which is so inspiring to me) and at no point did the little green monster rear its head and say "Bet you wish you had this!" Instead, I simply smiled, and was glad that all of those in the story DID have that. I love making personal progress!
