"Why aren't you blogging any more?"
This has been a question I've fielded frequently over the last 6 months. Well, life got pretty CrAzY around here for me. Just when I felt like I was settling into our new routines with the addition of Charlotte our sweet Maisie made her appearance and we were back to square one. But, thankfully life feels soooo much better today! So, that's one reason, but not the only reason...
One of the biggest reasons I've been so quiet is because of evil internet trolls. Yuck! They drive me crazy. These trolls are people who hide behind the anonymity of their computer and leave some of the most vile and hurtful comments. Most of you reading this can't even imagine the things they've said to me and about our family (and NO I will not share them with you! No good would come from it and I refuse to ever verbalize them aloud! Don't feel bad, I don't usually even tell Dave the specifics. It's nothing but garbage and no one needs discussions about trash!)
Edit: the trolls attack mostly because we adopted a special needs child internationally. There is a small group of people very loudly opposed to adoptions; specifically special needs and internationally.
I needed to take a break from them. I was newly home with Charlotte and pregnant and hormonal. It was something I just wasn't in the place emotionally to be able to handle. As I'm sure you may have noticed before, but that is why my blog comments are set to be moderated and why I don't/can't allow free commenting. So, feel free to comment away and I will happily approve all appropriate comments, but I just can't allow the horrific ones to be publicly displayed. I will NOT give the trolls such power!
This blog is mine. It's about my life. It's my journal of sorts. I love sharing our lives with y'all. I love showing you what real life looks like for us. The good, the bad, the ugly. I love raising awareness for children with special needs and for orphans around the world. So, what you'll read is life from my eyes. Some might be funny, some might be scary or sad, some might be cute, and some might be boring to you. I'm writing because I want to - because having a cup of hot coffee with y'all isn't possible but I want to share this life with you.
So, welcome back to my living room! I've missed you!
