Show Us Your Life Friday

Sorry this is so late in the day, but I hope it finds someone and is able to help others. I'm not the most knowledgable about Adoption and Birthmom things. But I want to help other girls who have been in my shoes make more of their lives after placement. My heart breaks for all the birthmothers out there who don't have the support system I did. I was very blessed to have such amazing friends and family. I've had my ups & downs, but that is normal in any situation, in any life. But I'd like to help someone decide on what to do if they are ever placed in a situation of parenting or adoption. I am wanting to be a sounding board for women who find themselves pregnant and alone. So, if you know someone who is struggling, please send them my way. I can try my best to listen, comfort and support. I might not know the answers to your questions or concerns, but I can sure do  my best to help you find it. Two heads are better than one, so they say!

You may or may not have noticed, but I took off every picture of my son, or most of them. There may be a post or two I forgot, but I went through the whole blog and tried to. It is not my place to put them on a public site. They are on my facebook, but only my family and a FEW close friends can see them. I check the security on them OFTEN and make sure that only certain people can see them. And I am very careful about who I allow.
