While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.Â ~Dorothea Lange
A few blogs I follow regularly post under a tag of Adoption Free Friday.Â I think I am gonna try that approach for a while.Â Mama2Roo used to tease me about sharing non-adoption related material on my blog. For me, my blog, this blog is pretty hardcore to its topic – adoption and its effect onÂ me, my life, my subsequent children and extended family.Â As a result, it is easy for one to assume I am a raving nutter grasping for walls and waving a snot rag all the time.
Â I am not.Â I have a full life with wonderful boys, wonderful fiance, hobbies that include jewelry making, writing, reading, home decor, entertaining, hair color, fashion, and more. But I dont share that here for a number of reasons. Does anyone really CARE what my latest hair color is? What I made for dinner? No offense to those types of mommy blogs but I can’t imagine anyoneÂ being interested in that part of my life.Â Perhaps I dont know how to write about anything but adoption (hope not). Perhaps I am wrong. Perhaps I am too hardcore about keeping this blog true to topic. Perhaps I am once again overthinking.
Regardless, I want to jump on the Adoption Free Friday wagon and will do so by sharing photos of my darling Rich.
