Blogaholics Anonymous


I'm a blog addict, an information junkie. I read decorating blogs, home organization blogs, adoption blogs, political blogs - anything that makes me learn or think or laugh or grow. Here's a smattering of posts I've enjoyed lately. Disclaimer: By posting these links, I'm not saying I endorse all the views expressed; but I am saying they made me think.

I'm posting these links on Friday instead of Sunday this week.  There's a lot of good stuff here, and I want to give you time to check out as many as you'd like.  You may notice that I included posts by both a birthmother and an adult adoptee.  That's important.  As adoptive parents, we need to listen to and honor their voices.

Is there a blog you read regularly? A website you love? Leave a comment and let me know what it is and why you like it. You can even shamelessly promote your own blog. Gotta feed my addiction.

What a Nursing Bra Taught Me About Friendship - aren't you curious about this one?

Friendship is Hard (and How to Make it Easier) - a follow-up to the "nursing bra" post.
 
"Positive" Adoption Language? - written by a birthmother.

I Choose Being Here - is it weird for a mom to prefer a night home with her kids to a Girls Night Out?

Why My (Amended) Birth Certificate is a Lie - written by an adult adoptee.

The Other Side of Obedience (and why I hate sequels.) - I may have saved the best for last.  This is a powerfully written story of a couple who takes in six foster siblings.

    1. You SHOULD write - because you have a gift! I meant to write and ask if I could link to your post - especially becaus it was personal. So glad that you are pleased to see it here.

  3. I hit the "restart" button on my blog (meaning, my life has changed so much that I had to delete all of my old posts to make room for our new life's journey) http://faithfulheartwhispers.blogspot.com/
