Claud has a great post today, a letter to Oprah Winfrey. Claud tells us at the end of her post "I invite every reader, lurker or visitor of this post to add a comment addressed to Oprah asking for her help and explaining why."I think this is a wonderful idea, so I thought I would spread the word. Claud is a wonderful writer, if you don't know about her yet, you should browse her blog for a while. On the right side of the page, about half way down, she has a link to her most popular posts.
I know I haven't posted for a while. I've actually been working on a page to add to this blog. It will be a page with links to some of my favorite blog posts, some great research pages, and adoption related videos. Great resources for mothers considering adoption, for first moms coming out of the fog, anyone wanting to learn about the effects of adoption on those of us who actually live with it. When I was first reunited, I thought I was losing my mind. I had so many thoughts and feelings that contradicted everything I had been told, everything I had believed to be the truth. Finding some of these bloggers truly saved my sanity. They let me know I was not crazy ~ everything I was feeling was the truth, was "normal" for my not-so-normal life. Hopefully in the next few days I will have enough info to get the page added.
Another reason I haven't been writing much is because I've finally been back in my sewing room! I finally finished the quilt I started making my daughter over a year ago, but hadn't worked on for about 9 months. I also have a new grandson who will be born in about four weeks, and now a beautiful quilt is almost ready for him! I will have to post some photos here one day. I do have a life outside of all this "adoption" stuff you know!
Happy February everyone! Only 48 days until spring!
