I am so overwhelmed by the wonderful comments you have all left me. Thank you so much to all of your for your kind words, prayers and good thoughts. I appreciate them so very much...we both do! I want to email each and every one of you back, but I have a problem.
Admitting this will most likely make me sound like a dork or at the least inept, but I'm just going to say it...."I don't know how." It's not that I don't know how to email...I'm a master at that. I just am unsure how to email people who comment on my blog. I leave comments for people all the time and they email me back with my comment in the email. So I guess I need help. Admitting is the first step to recovery right??? I'm not sure if there is just some quick way that I am missing that allows me to email back and it includes the portion of your comment or do I do what I normally would and go to your blog, click on your email link and then copy and paste your comment into an email???? I just think there has to be something a bit easier than that. I'm just missing it. Help a girl out!
I need even more help. Maybe this would fall under the suggestion category, but we'll call it help. I am a researcher/planner and reader. I love to read. I always have. In the summer, it's not unusual for me to read a couple books a week. Oh, the joys of being a teacher and having a summer vacation! I also like to research things. Before I make a purchase, I research the item I want to buy. I read reviews and spend time making sure I am informed. My researching/planning skills have kicked in with this adoption, big time!! They make me want to do my research and be prepared to be an adoptive parent. I want to be prepared for the tough questions some day. I want to be prepared for the easy questions. When someone asks me something stupid, I want to be prepared. When someone asks me something because they are just curious, I want to be prepared. I just want to plan ahead and have as much information on adoption as I can. Information from the perspective of the birth parents, adoptive parents and adopted child.
If any of you have suggestions of must read books, I would love for you to share them. I have found several suggestions online, but it's always nice to have personal recommendations. I'll make a list and share it in a post, for those of you who are interested. Thanks so much!
Have a great day! Only two more days until the weekend!
