I know, and I am sure you do by now, that I am no writer. I am good at some things, but writing isn’t one of them. In fact, Jeff might have been the author of several of my creative writing projects in college. Probably shouldn’t have admitted that. It just comes easier to him. Take for example the prayer we wrote for our child. I tried for an hour to draft something and it was terrible. I think I am too used to writing for first graders. He sat down and in five minutes put together the prayer. My involvement was to stream tears down my cheek as he read it to me.
I have been giving this blogging thing a shot and have discovered that it is tricky when I don’t know who my audience is. Am I writing to family members? Friends? Co-workers? Facebook friends? Nosey Facebook “friends”, other adoptive families? Blog lurkers? (I am definitely guilty of that one!) I have no idea. I watch as the counter goes up on the side and continue to shake my head. It makes me a little nervous. People are really reading this? Really?
Anyway the point of this was to ask you to bear with me as I try to figure this all out. I know Jeff has some posts on the horizon (He won’t even tell me what they are about!) and hopefully his writing will keep you coming back for more. We really do want this blog to be frequented by all of you. We want to share our story with you, whether we know you or not. So continue to spread the word of our blog and send people our way.
