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.

Book of Essays

Hi guys!  I noticed that some of my old blogging buddies are following me now.  I'm sorry I keep neglecting this blog.  My open adoption isn't going very well.  My personal life is also not going very well.  So it's been hard to get motivated to write.

Anyway, I want to write some essays on adoption and was wondering if any of you had topics to suggest.  I have a few old blog entries that would qualify, but most of my writing here is personal.

There is very little out there for birthmothers.  I've always wanted to do my part to fill that void, and then Amy Seek's book came out, and I got all excited because finally someone was telling it like it is, but it turned out that people who weren't birthmothers still weren't enlightened.  She got a backlash of negativity.

I don't need to change anyone's mind.  I just want to talk about adoption related issues from the birthmother perspective.

And just this second I noticed it's November so it's NaNoWriMo (do I have that right? It's been awhile.).  I'm a day late, but I'll give you a 12% likelihood that I'll write a post a day this month.  Topic suggestions welcome.

So essay topics and blog topics.  Feel free to make the blog topics personal if you're curious about how things are going in my corner of the adoption world.  And to those of you who knew me when, thanks for coming back.  And to those of you who are new, welcome.  I brought this blog back out intending to use it again so I'll try to do that.
