NaBloPoMo (again)

You may have noticed a new badge off to the right. The month of November isn't just about celebrating children losing their identities and families. It's also National Blog Posting Month.

Once again, I'm going to take this November to refocus on this blog and think carefully about adoption. This is probably not what the industry intends when they want to celebrate adoption this month. But I'm not terribly in the mood to celebrate adoption.

Still, it gives me some motivation to write every day. I always work better with hard deadlines. Well, maybe not better, but I certainly get something done.

I hope it's useful for me, and interesting for my readers. I just wanted to give you all a heads up before the madness begins. It all starts Sunday. We'll see if I make it another 30 days.

I'm looking forward to reading your blog over the next month. I'm an adoptive mom and I've just very recently become more aware of the deep pain and loss associated with adoption. I'm certainly not looking to you or to anyone else to "teach" me how to be a better a-mom or to make me "feel" better about my daughter's loss, I'm trying to gain a better understanding. I know you're writing to other adoptees, I am not your target audience, but I'd like to follow along and learn, if that's okay.

You are welcome to read along. I'm not sure who my target audience is. Usually when I write, I'm writing for me, but I'm happy to share with whoever is interested.
