Dear Friends Who Read This Little Blog o’ Mine:
As many of you know, I sometimes write posts that are pretty raw and full of emotion. I know they can’t be easy for some of you to read, which got me to thinking about “What if Ms. Feverfew ever finds this blog?” I spent a serious amount of time trying to put myself in her shoes. I eventually realized that for her sake, some of these must be password. protected. This is her story as much as it is mine. While I don’t want to censor my truth, I also realize there are boundaries that should be respected. Password protecting those posts is an excellent solution to balancing my needs for full disclosure with discretion.
The second thing that made me realize I need to password protect some of these posts is that I need a safe place to just “let it all hang out” as my mama says. And sometimes “it” is not pretty and can be pretty difficult to digest. And if Ms. Feverfew were to ever stumble upon this blog….she doesn’t need to read those kinds of things.
As I have progressed on the path of healing from the wounds adoption left behind, I have discovered I absolutely need you, my readers. I need to know that I am not alone in this and that others have managed to wade through it and survive. As many of you already know, there are few therapists out there qualified to help those of us who are hurting from adoption, especially those of us in the LDS church. This blog has become that place for me.
Thank you all for your love and support over the past few years as I have found my bearings. I hope you will stick around and keep reading and giving me your honest feedback.
Much love and belief –
P.S. If you want the password, drop me an email at s o s t i n k i n h a p p y (at symbol) h o t m a i l d o t c o m. Let me know who you are because sometimes I don’t always recognize email addresses!
