I welcome guest bloggers and regulars who like to comment. Do you have a reaction to a post, an article, a story, a poem, or an image you'd like to share?
Here's my general request: Be positive and approachable. This blog is about sharing the best of what birthparents have to offer. You don't have to be a birthparent to share here. We want to reach other birthparents, expectant parents considering adoption, adoptees, adoptive parents, prospective adoptive parents, adoption professionals, legislators, lawyers, relatives and friends of people with an adoption story, and pretty much anyone who might feel they want to know more about adoption and birthparents.
We want everyone - including me - to know Adoption's Big Picture. There's lots to the story. There is pain and anger so you can and should share that - but do so in a way that is safe for you and everyone else.
I'm not in the mood for sarcasm or negativity. If you have something simply ranting and expressing your anger or pain - try again another time when you have something else. These "negative" things are important in your world. Work through them and find the place where they may be of use to someone else in the world we all share. Seriously. If you are hurting and you want to take it out on me or my supporters and potential supporters - you need to get help from a professional. If you are angry and you want people to understand why without placing blame and being a total turn off to any reasonable human, I'm very proud and happy to publish your thoughts.
This is a tall order, but please give it a try and share. Your voice matters!
(we'll review it and then probably post it!)
