Imagine my surprise when I found out that I was listed as one of the top 50 adoption blog’s out there at A Child Chosen! Thanks, Marcie. Does this mean I need to post more about adoption? It’s funny, how after awhile, it just becomes the fabric of our lives. If you are here for the first time with adoption on your mind, please check out the labels “open adoption” and “first birthday”–that’s where the adoption content is, for the most part.
Today we picked up MAM’s school pictures. She looks SO OLD. She also looks exactly like her paternal grandmother, minus the 1940’s dress and curls. And I love that I know that about her, and I love that we will be able to pull out Grandma K’s pictures and show them side by side with MAM’s as she gets older. Right now, that’s what open adoption is on one front.
On other fronts, there are things going on and there are days that I wish I didn’t know. Most days, I’m glad I’m aware now, but it’s not easy. More on that as it develops.
