A Good Excuse
Okay, so this time I have a very good excuse.
If you've been reading my posts for awhile, you may have remembered that I wrote a post back in June of 2008 pertaining to the book THE GIRLS WHO WENT AWAY and my own story about my search for a brother who was given up for adoption before I was born.
After 21 years of looking, I found him last week! It has been a crazy roller coaster of a ride! We are just starting to connect with each other and trying to catch up on nearly 40 years of missed experiences.
I am fortunate that my story turned out beautifully as there are so many adoption reunions that go horribly wrong. Laws need to be changed. There's no other way around it. And they need to be changed sooner rather than later. All you have to do is check an adoption registry to see how many people are searching for those affected by adoption.
I am of course keeping track of the books that I am reading (although they've been very few and far between over the past week!) and I will return to blogging shortly. Right after I learn everything there is to learn about the brother that I have found. Kidding! I'll be back soon.
