One of Those That Makes Me Think

I mentioned last week that I enjoy reading blogs and books and essays that make me think.  This post is certainly one of those.

It's not the easiest read in the world - it's gritty and compelling. Vulnerable and searching. I found myself bookmarking it and coming back to it for several different readings after it first went up.  I really think you'd enjoy it.

Though I don't know the author well at all, she is one of the few adoptive-mom bloggers that I've ever had the pleasure of meeting in person. We met in the early days of Li'l Empress's home-coming:  I had bumped into a great friend from our agency's community and this sweet young mother approached the two of us as we were trying to catch up a bit and still manage our three little empresses who were chattering and climbing all over both of us like little monkeys. We connected in that "I've been where you are" kind of moment and I so appreciate that she shared her blog address with me that day.

Skip around, I think you'll enjoy some of her other writings, including her most recent.
