Our new adventure

I started this blog as a way to document our adoption journey. It became much more than that for us. We made many friends. We received lots of support, which was desperately needed and greatly appreciated. I learned that blogging was therapeutic for me during the stressful adoption process. I enjoyed the writing process (writing has never been a strength). This time I'm sewing (also not a strength).

Blogging is kind of strange. For many reasons. I find myself editing more and more. I hate editing. I don't know who is reading.

I LOVE the idea that I can create a blog book for Judah about our journey. Hopefully he'll like having it when I'm old and batty (or older and possibly more batty). Looking back on the last three years, I think any one who has read this blog can clearly see Judah, through my eyes. I want that for our Violet. I want her story to be told. From our start.
So, I'm starting a new blog. For her. I'm starting it on wordpress, so it will be password protected. Right now, I feel better about that. I'm not sure what this blog will look like, because it is FOR her.

I've started to play around with it and will give you the address as soon as it's ready :)

Congratulations on building your family again! I feel like I haven't talked to you forever. Judah will be an amazing big brother! Please add me to your new blog. You have inspired me to do the same (start a new blog for Makeda). I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed right now- so it might not happen for a few weeks- but thanks for the great idea!!!
Love and miss you and your family like crazy!!!
