I have always loved to dance. As an adult adoptee, a bio mom, and an adoptive mom, I dance between love and loss regularly. I dance with joy over small victories and small signs of acceptance. I dance to escape pain and to avoid obvious rejection from my family(ies). Let me continue to dance with the pain, the understanding, the surrender, His plan, and not faint.

A Beginning

 I am an adult adoptee, biological mother, and an adoptive mother. The only part of the adoption triad (birthmom, adoptee, and adoptive parents) that I haven’t been is a “birthmom”–one who has placed her baby for adoption. I am 2 out of 3 parts of the triangle, and I have been completely disheveled at times by this.

Parenting as an adoptee forces me to face my own adoptee issues as never before. In fact, it is only through adopting Naika, that God has pushed-shoved-and-pulled me through the “searching for my birthfamily” door. Motivated to adopt because I am adopted, we brought our daughter home from Haiti in Septmeber of 2005.

For now (because other life “stuff” is calling my name), I will post something a dear friend sent me a while back. Enough reading . . . just look at the pictures! The pictures say plenty!

She is fostering this guy for another mom who couldn’t take care of him. He had his eyes closed, but now they are open. He is just a little bigger than her other pups. She loves this little guy more than the other puppies and she is nursing him back to health. He is the cleanest puppy ever because she licks him all the time.

This is “Pink” short for pig & tink

Tink is very protective over Pink
