MIA but for good reason

It’s been almost two months since I’ve done any regular posting. I just don’t know what to say anymore. Life is HARD here. Teen adoption is definitely not for the faint of heart. Most days I feel like I should be classified as faint of heart… I do want to blog about our experiences but I linked my Facebook account to this blog and feel as if I am violating my daughter’s privacy. Too many people know us in person and I’ve had to request that they be careful not to discuss anything I’ve posted about the challenges of older child adoption. That’s not fair to anyone. I’m not sure what the solution is… stop posting my links on FB? Stop blogging altogether? I haven’t found a solution I’m comfortable with.

Maybe once we’re past this crisis point, I’ll be able to blog about how things went and what we learned. Maybe at that point I won’t feel like I’m betraying my daughter by posting on the internet about her behavior. Maybe for awhile I should just blog about the happy aspects of our lives, though that’s definitely not a true perspective of what’s going on in our house.

Not that I have much time for blogging anyways… life is rough!

6 Thoughts on “MIA but for good reason

  1. There will be time for posting one of these days. I am amazed at how much others post on facebook about their children. I am glad those issues did not exist back in the old days. As it was, I would not had the time had I wanted to share some of the goings-on.
    Hang in there!

    Do what u feel is best.
    I don’t have my fb linked with my blog. My Facebook I usually post pics of my kids for family and co workers.
    I write more stuff here actually.
    You do what you feel is best. Teen adoption is hard.
    We will keep your family in our prayers.

  3. I’ve been wondering how you have been going. I hope things improve for you. The fine line between sharing and privacy is a difficult one to tread, I hope you can find a balance.

    Wishing all of you the very best as you navigate the path to becoming a family.

  4. Praying for all of you. God bless you and your family this Christmas season!

  5. Hopefully, your first Christmas together has been fun. I’ve been thinking about you!

    I was thinking of you this last week as we celebrated another Forever Family Day. I had a friend tell me she wonders if her family will ever be normal. I assured her that a lot of families feel this way, and that normal for one family is not necessarily normal for another. I admire your honesty. Please make sure and take care of yourself so you can have the energy to take care of your girls. I would scrapbook until I felt I liked my kids again, and then went to bed. Maybe we need a private group for “non normal” families that feel overwhelmed with the idea of family normalcy.
