I just attended a kick ass home birth of a 10lb 2oz baby girl. YAY!

Off the birth/CS topic, but I recently created a blog about my experiences with (open)adoption. And I am looking for ideas about what to write about and to even see if there is an interest. Mostly it will just be me venting and babbling about my adoption experiences, and hopefully allowing others to participate in the discussion as well.

If anyone is interested please check it out:

I just need a quick secret off facebook and twitter moment to say...

Sometimes people with one tiny infant, no other children, and far too many opinions about parenting make me want to punch my computer.

That is all.

LilRedMommy: I'm an adoptive mother from an open adoption (a kinship adoption). I've also been a foster parent. I never take for granted the importance of birth parents. They are forever an undeniably important part of that child's life and history. Thank you for making a choice that transcends your own well-being. I hope your position is respected and appreciated by your son's adoptive parents. ((((hugs))))

No socks with sandals? How else are we to deal with the 60-degree swing between temperatures in fall here in Texas? Also, I'd rather see socks than man-feet.

Meanwhile, the evil sun is killing my veggie garden. That's it, I'm moving to Canada. Thanks to global warming, it'll probably have mild winters by the time I'm 60.

Dana, thanks so much! Its been hard in the past (and probably will be again) but being able to see my son once a year really helps me. I hate to be shamelessly self promoting, but I just figured I would try to garner interest anywhere I can. I love this community, so this was my first thought. I am hoping to help myself with some self-discovery and hopefully help others along the way (but it will be worth it to me even if it just helps my process).

LilRedMommy... your wish for promotion is my command.

Excellent point. See you in Canada.

Emjaybee: The continually bouncing between 80+ and approximately 40 degree temps are freaking the mess out of our plants. Our carrots...do not exist, and our strawberries grow about one a week. Bah. We're going to have a hell of a radish crop, though.

Personally, I am theoretically planning a visit home, while actually avoiding planning entirely through the canning of strawberry jam and pesto. YUM!
