About Me

I placed my daughter in an open adoption in 2002. I started this blog in 2004 as a place to journal and eventually I became part of a community. The community has moved on, but I have decided to come back.

Birthday Visit

So I'm a little late, but I guess I should post a little bit of her birthday.

Lots of hugs, some sharing with friends about birthmom-birthdad- brother stuff. Wanting to know names and if they'll come visit. Acted like it was a source of pride with her friends. At this point in her life she seems really secure with the fact that she was adopted.

It was a rock climbing party. All the other kids were actually doing it and trying. She was the only kid not doing it. It bothered me.

We went to her house and she opened presents. She really liked what I gave her which made me happy. Found an age-appropriate Judy Blume book which her mom was pleased about.

Bed. I didn't sleep at all that night, but I had forgotten my medication so that might have been why. Wasn't even tired driving home the next morning so who knows.

It was a good visit. Nothing earth-shattering to write about. I guess I need to write sooner so that at least if there's nothing adoption related, it'll still feel like a fun post.
