So last week we had a busy little bee of a blog!
I can almost say for certain it was people "googling" the news from last week that brought so many hits to our site...it peaked at around 388 visits on Tuesday...which is the most we have ever had.
Most of the 'visitors' didn't stay very long and those who did stay around for a time obviously where here to read our story which is why we started this blog in the first place. So, read away!
I have to say that we have been very lucky to date as we haven't (knock, knock) had any comments that were negative or out of line which is good.
We also haven't had any weird, middle-of-the-night phone calls or people just randomly showing up at our house because they saw our blog...this is also good. (Don't go getting any ideas Hal Gorger!)
I struggled a lot last week with whether or not I would keep on with this blog....it seemed to me that we were in a real catch 22.
When we first started this blog we wanted to be able to post information for our friends and family so they could share in our journey to our family with us.
Along the way it came to be a collection of thoughts and feelings for us to give to our child as a keepsake of where our heads and hearts were at as made our way to them.
It also became a much needed link to other parents who are on the same journey as us...we have made some unbelievable friends thru our blogging adventures. Some we have gotten to know very well, some we have flown to meet in person, others we haven't met yet but will one day!
We have friends from both agencies...and my catch 22 was how do we continue on with our blog knowing our stories and hopefully our eventual referral will hurt others who have gone thru so much pain and sadness in the last week or so.
I told Yvan I wasn't sure I would be able to post our referral news because I don't want to hurt anyone.
And so I thought maybe we would wind down this blog....but then I thought of why we started this in the first place...and have decided to keep going!
I hope people will still follow and will celebrate along with us when/if we get "The Call".
And to those of you who can't follow anymore because it is just to hard...I completely understand. I would feel the same if I was in your place....know that we think of each and every one of you daily!
