Just in case you forgot

Just in case anyone didn't know or has forgotten....grief is still stupid.

It doesn't matter how long it has been.  The memories are still clear, the emotions still raw.

All triggers present and accounted for with maybe a few new ones to pour into the mix.

I don't know what it is to lose anyone but a child.  Count me lucky in some respects.  The loss of a child however....I cannot imagine anything that hurts more or a grief more intense.

I spent all last night reading back through your blog archive to the very beginning. You clearly love, respect, and value you your kids more than words can say -- though of course your words do an excellent job! I'm an aspiring adoptive mom of kids with disabilities myself, and you are an inspiration. :)

Have you considered doing a series of posts introducing each of your children individually and explaining how you came to be their mother? The adoption process seems so daunting, especially as a single parent, and I for one would so appreciate hearing about how you navigated it so many times and with such success!

This is only a suggestion, of course. You're doing a fabulous job, and I look forward to being a reader for a long time to come!

thanks Leah! Good luck in growing your family! Whereabouts are you located i.e. US, Canada Australia?

US! I'm currently a graduate student in New York City, so it'll be a few years before I'm ready to adopt. But hey, if you ever come to the city and need a babysitter... :-)
