I know that I would never have been able to make it through the pain and drama of the last few years without you guys, but holy smokes y’all just blew me away! To know that my post actually brought tears to your eyes, I’m tearing up right now just thinking about it. It’s seriously an overwhelming, tangible, outpouring of support. I don’t even know how to begin to thank you all for that. Knowing that even some of you from the China adoption community still read me means a lot to me. I mean, you all mean a lot to me, but when China booted us out and then Guatemala closed and it seemed like every blogger I knew started having children I felt a little like someone without a home, a community. It’s just nice to know y’all haven’t forgotten about me.
I can’t wait to share our experiences with you all. We have 8+ weeks of classes ahead of us. That’s many hours of blog material right there!
So, now that a child is on the way, things are going to change around here. While I’m pretty open about a lot of things I still want to be able to protect my child’s privacy. I’ll post pics of him/her but I won’t post their real name. Just like how CSP wasn’t born Cap’n Safety Pants, our child will be known on my blog by a nickname. I will also be removing the link to my Facebook page once the little dude or dudette comes home, so if we aren’t FB friends now, and you’d like to be, then skip on over there with a quickness.
I’ve read a bunch of mommy blogs, most great, some a little disturbing. I know I’m guilty of over sharing, but it’s amazing what some people will put on the internet. I don’t know everything, but I know that there’s a good chance that my children will read what I’ve written here and the last thing I want is for them to be embarrassed.
I have some figuring out to do, but it sure is nice to know y’all will be there for me along the way!
