I confess it is friggin' cold here today and I am tired of it. I need it to be spring...I know I have said that before but it is really true.
I confess we had a great family meal tonight - nothing like ordering in pizza on a cold winter's night!
I confess my son loves Jamiroquai which makes me very happy. He also likes Ben Harper and Jack Johnson.
I confess this week I learned to ask for help when I need it. I have always been the kind of person who thinks they can handle it all on their own....I learned the hard way this is not true.
I confess we have a fantastic support group made up of friends and family who have helped us so much and for whom we can not tell enough how much we love them.
I confess music does much for the soul and tonight we are having a music fest to top all music fests! And there is dancing! Dancing the likes of which you have never seen!
I confess our adoption journey was long and full of twists and turns. So much so that last week my body gave out and said "Enough! Since you won't rest, I will make you!" and it did.
I confess without my husband and both of our moms this last week would have been far worse than it was.
I confess no one talks about what happens, what really happens, when they come home. It isn't all "daisies and roses". There are good times, there are bad times and there are some U.G.L.Y times.
I confess I am suffering from this and I felt so alone...until I reached out and found there were other people who felt or were feeling like I was....adoption and bio alike.
I confess I am going to share what we are going through so that others know they aren't alone.
I confess this is a time of healing for all of us, of bonding, of becoming a family and the road will be rocky...it will be like the yellow brick road....full of so many adventures but in the end we will come out o.k. and maybe we won't get to see the wizard but we will get to Kansas where "there's no place like home!"
