So apparently all I preach is how great adoption is, How it is perfect with no sadness, no wanting to look back. How it is sunshine and lollipops. Well how rude of me. I guess I need to direct you to
This one where I was having a hard time...or this one when I couldn't get out of bed so I researched how to handle grief.
Or the day I started the blog just a year ago when I sat and cried to my now husband telling him how badly it hurt. How bad I wanted to hold that sweet little girl that I love so much.
Was it Sunshine and Lollipops then. HELL NO! Is it sunshine and lollipops everyday....you better think again. If it was always Sunshine and lollipops I would go INSANE! Somedays I just wanna sit and cry..no joke.
So now that I spilt the truth I am sure most of you already know seeing as how you can be A birthparent going through grief of a placed child An adoptive parent dealing with infertility an adoptee dealing with confused feelings or someone just wondering what the heck adoption is about.
Do all of you feel uplifted? Encouraged? Do you have a warm fuzzy in your heart knowing you have friends out there who can help you through these hard times? Or do you feel like someone just kicked you in the stomach when you were already down.
Ya, there are Rainclouds and Lima Beans all the time. But I choose to see the Rainbow at the end and stand up knowing my friends are always right behind me. So I am going to continue posting encouraging things instead of this Raincloud crap and Lima Beans. Besides they taste really nasty.
