Green Gum Drops

Well, thank you!

To each and everyone of you who commented or sent me an email or a message on Facebook.

I appreciate it.

My motivation to blog has been renewed by your thoughts, advice and encouragement.

When I started my blog it was to document our journey to Ade as well to connect with others who were building their families through adoption.

It has been a positive experience and I want to keep going with it.

I have made some lifelong friendships.

Sometimes I hesitated telling the good, the bad and the ugly.

I don't want anyone to think everything is "happy, happy, joy, joy!" all the time.

Because it isn't.

But it isn't all doom and gloom either (it seemed that way to me for while).

It's real life.

The happy, sad, hard, fun, trying, amazing chronicles of....

Our life!

And yes, as someone kindly reminded me...it's my blog and I can blog about anything I want.

Even green gum drops!

See you soon!

Hi Rana. I was wondering what happened to your blog!! I don't comment often but I do check in to see how you are doing. You are so right about social networking making us lonely and interact less in person. If you didn't have a blog I would actually call to check in! So sad.
Hope you are having a good summer.

YIPEE!!!!! I check your blog everyday! I love to read your updates- good, bad and ugly! Looking forward to green gum drops!

Hey Rana. Your blog is the first one I check in my blog reading. Selfishly, I'd be sad if you stopped, but I think you should continue blogging only if it gives YOU something.

So. Green gum drops? Love 'em or hate 'em? I like the black ones.

Hey, Rana -
I have never commented on your blog before but I guess I should have, because I read it regularly and really appreciate the thoughts and experiences you share. As someone waiting for an adoption referral, blogs like yours are one of the things that have kept me going through all these months of waiting. So - sorry for having kept silent so long, and I'm really glad you're back!
