That three years ago I started blogging, after a piece I wrote for Single Mother’s by Choice Quarterly published my first big piece, and after Sam hit me in the head with a slipper. He was almost three.
That the first poem I wrote as an adult was called “This is where you’ll find me” about waiting for a placement.
That this week the generous folks over at Adoptive Families Magazine deemed this blog one of the top twenty blogs on the topic of adoption? (Of the ones they were hip to, and of course we all have our own agenda.) I am as you can imagine in great company on that list-so please take time to read it. Then add your own ideas for the blogs they missed for next time!
I have everyone of you who takes the time to stop by and wonder, and laugh, and react, and share Mama C in whatever way you see fit, to thank for what this blog has become. And yes Universe I understand it is time to get the proposal done, the book could not be more ready to be birthed, so to speak.
And would you believe that #1 son is being picked up in one of those GIGANTIC city snow plows and toured around the city for half an hour, and then dropped off at school? Of course the news crew is coming to capture this. How come? Because Sam just draws this kind of magic to him. That and I won a raffle for a snow plow ride last spring, and just remembered it last week. The news crew was not my idea. I’d better go email his teacher, and let her know he might be a little wound up, and that the snow plow ride is no tall tale.
Congratulations!!!! You so deserve this and I can’t wait to read your book!!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS, oh Beautiful Blogger!!!! Enjoying ALL that you write!
from a Big Fan
You are so deserving. Congratulations!
Thank you Pete, Anono-person, Liz and Pragmatic Mom. I am inspired to return to the proposal now more than ever. It has been a year since I worked on it seriously. It’s high time. Your encouragement helps a ton.
Congratulations. I can’t think of a more worthy recipient! You’re a true original.
That is crazy kind of you.
