It’s quite a story, all of the things that have happened over the last month since my last blog post.
People ‘friending’ me on my FB page only to ‘spy’ and ‘track’ and ‘monitor’ what I’m doing and watching me help women thinking of placing their children, and informing them of ALL of their options.
People getting upset with what I’m doing because, in their mind…..my ‘numbers’ of the women I’m speaking with are more positive on the parenting side, than on the placing side.
To these people, I’m taking babies right out of their arms, or because of my personal situation, providing ‘biased’ information, and because I will never ‘expose’ and bring attention to the women that help, they don’t know the ‘thank yous’ I receive regularly for the ‘non-biased’ and helpful support that I have provided them – from both those who have placed and who have decided to parent.
A ‘pack’ of these people who are APs/PAPs and HAPS banded together copying my blog, watching as I found more things that made me realize even more than before that all the reasons for placing my son were so temporary and in some cases….non-existent. This last thing that eliminated one of the main reasons for me placing my son, happened right after the cancelled Christmas visit, and it sent me for a spin.
I’m going to write another post about all of the things that I have discovered, but this post is just to state the fact that just because you read my feelings and thoughts that I write and help me process things relating to placing my son for adoption and a few other details here and there of my life, does NOT mean that you KNOW me, my relationship with my son’s APs, or anything about me being a mom to my daughter, my professional career, my immediate family or anything that happens on the day to day.
You read posts that take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours for me to put together as I process them.
Do not ASSUME you KNOW me. You don’t. You know of a small part of my thoughts.
