The best part about blogging

I just became a blogger.  It was supposed to be a private journal for me.  A quiet therapy to help me make sense of the thoughts that swirled in my head after I became a birthmother and my adoption story didn't turn out how I expected.

But as time has gone on, I feel like I have met some of the most amazing women.  Adoptive mothers, birthmothers, couples waiting to adopt, moms with very sick children, a young mom who just lost her husband (while she was pregnant with their 3rd child), and just regular moms trying to make sense of parenting like we all do.  I pray for them.  And it is amazing how healing it has been for me.

Never once have I met any of them face to face, yet I feel like they are an intimate part of my support network. 

So today I am thankful for my blog friends.  And you may not even know you are one of them, but I have come to love each of you.  I love how we are all flawed, trying our best, women of faith just trying to make sense of it all.

Blogging rocks!
