I have been toying with the idea of taking this blog private but have decided against it because I like the idea that maybe we have "helped" someone find their way to adoption somehow....however, I do have some thoughts I need to get out and you have all been such a great lifeline for me....and I do miss being able to let loose on my keyboard whenever I have too much going on in my head to contain it without going a little crazy.
So many of you have been here for us cheering for us for so long that I would like to share some of what is going on with us but I don't feel comfortable just putting it all out there for just anyone to read....
I thought about starting a new blog but honestly I am having a hard time with keeping two blogs up - since my second one was the Project 365 blog and it has now gone bust because of a lot of emotional turmoil over the last couple of weeks - I have decided to use that one as my "I need to vent but don't want the whole world to read it" blog. I can password protect certain posts and get my thoughts out of my head and maybe get some advice back from you all.
So, if you are interested in reading some of those protected posts - send me an email (see the right side of the blog for my email if you don't have my personal one)
I have set some general guidelines as to who would qualify and you should be able to say "Yes" to at least ONE of the items listed below to get the password (not so hard right):
1. We have emailed previously more than - oh let's say 5 times.
2. We have talked on the phone more than 6 times
3. You have been to my house
4. I have been to your house
5. We have been emailing for months and months venting, ranting, crying, laughing...
6. You have allowed me into your private blog to share your story (thanks to those who have :)
7. I was born to you or someone close to you
8. We have been friends for a really, really, really long time
9. I have cried in front of you and vice versa.
10. We have gone for coffee, tea, lunch, supper together more than 4 times
11.. You have been following our blog forever ( and it seems like forever) and commenting and supporting us that way...well I probably "know" you....
Now, as I said you don't have to qualify for all of these items but you get my drift - if you are someone who has been reading my blog but has never, ever commented or come out of the woodwork to email me personally (because you might be to shy to comment on a blog) than I probably won't give you the password.
But if we have been sharing our stories thru blogs, emails, phone calls etc. and supporting one another than send me an email...but only if you wanna :)
I will still be blogging here because this is our main blog about our journey to family!
P.S. Oh and you will find the link to my other blog on the right side as well - it will take me a couple of days to get this all sorted.
*Edit - if you want to leave your email in the comment section that works too - I will delete it so not everyone sees it!
Julie and Krista I have your email addresses already!
