By the lack of comments over the last few posts I’ve come to realize that the majority of my readers are no longer of the adoption circle sort. ?I guess that’s what happens when you aren’t right in the thick of things. ?I’ve become passe.
While I try not to make the main focus of this blog adoption and adoption related things it is very much a part of our lives. ?There are many people going through the adoption process looking for stories of families post-placement. ?The bad part of that is those people are often looking for the bad stories. ?Lord knows I have many bad stories to tell about the actual getting the child process. ?You can reference them here and here.
Truth is the post getting the child part has been fairly smooth. ?Sure, we have our issues. ?Oh I don’t know… getting food thrown at your head for 18 months ranks right up there in the pretty crappy category. ?Or every time we leave a family member’s house we get tense because we know that we will be carrying a child out to the car kicking and screaming. ?Or maybe the fact that we curse the neighbor dude with the Harley every time he drives by our house because the child can’t stand the noise. ?All not fun aspects of our life, but comparatively speaking they are pretty minor.
My readership has dwindled over the years. ?Probably a combination of less posting, happy happy post placement and mommy brain does horrible things to my humor (as in I’m not nearly as funny as I used to be). ?Either that or I drink less now and that has had an effect on my writing ability. ?But hey, Stephen King became an ok writer once he got off drugs. ?It could work for me too.
To be honest, I don’t know where to go. ?We lead a fairly normal laid back life around here. ?So dear readers, what do you want? ?More pictures, more videos, more stories, of what? ?I’m not ready to give up this here little blog. ?Partly because I like the community and mostly because without it I’d have no where to nag you into buying candy. ?You will buy candy won’t you?
