It has been 6 months since my last post. I love blogging, and I blog several times per week on my other blog. But my other blog is a private blog, due to the fact that it covers the intricate details of our adoption, and the personal lives of my children. It is raw and difficult. It exposes all the damage done to my three adopted girls by the people who were supposed to love, care for, and protect them. I absolutely can not make that information public. I also have to write about it, other wise I am unable to process everything myself. My other blog is my journal. It is my safety valve. It consumes all my writing energy for now. I hope that in time I'll get to a place where I have less emotionally demanding stuff to write about, and can write about daily life again, just for the fun of it. So for now, I am tenderly closing the cover of this blog and setting on the shelf with my other scrapbooks, photo albums, and notepads of cute things the kids have said.
Thanks for the years, dear blog. I'm so glad I wrote it all down. Looking forward to the day when I'll reopen this book, and find the joy in writing once again.
