Once upon a time, a girl wrote a blog to give herself peace. Her loved ones were worried about her during the long road of fertility and adoption and kept asking questions. The questions came from a loving place, but answering them over and over again wore her down. So she created a blog, a clear way to share what was happening in her life - the good, the bad, the ugly. It worked. She stayed sane, her son entered her life and things took their place in the world.
The blog became ignored sometimes once the boy arrived. Posts were less frequent and shorter. The girl was tired, but happy.
As a single parent, the girl was being asked lots of questions of people around her who were considering her path to mommyhood. These questions delighted the girl and she wanted to help others not feel so alone. So, the blog was reborn.
The past was not lost though. Nope. Her fertility and adoption journey lives safely in her blog archives for anyone to explore and read. (Look for July 2014 in the archives.) Now she posts about being a single parenthood in a transracial family. Life is good, it's a bit of a swirl at times but ah, so very, very good.
