Top 101

I realize it is Adoption Free Friday.  Have you noticed I did not post last Friday?  That was by design. I simply could not come up with something to post here that was not adoption related. Add to it I was percolating the thoughts expressed in the previous This No Contact Thing (which happened to generate  some very helpful commentary).

You will have to forgive me but this post will not be adoption free.

I noticed I was listed in Grown in My Hearts Top 101 Adoption, Loss and Fertility blogs. Thank you to whomever it was that made that decision. I feel oddly uncomfortable as I rarely visit GIMH.  This is my own issue and has nothing to do with the quality of the content, the writers, etc. on GIMH.  There are times when I read material there and find it WAY.TOO.TRIGGERING. So, I practice the fine art of avoidance.

But yeah, thanks, GIMH.  I am flattered.

6 Thoughts.

  1. Don’t feel uncomfortable… your blog is amazing and deserves to be on the list. Thank you for sharing your life with us. (from a GIMH writer)

  2. Agree about the triggering. I don’t go there. If I do it’s maybe once every ten months if that. Mind you Addie who is one of my favorite writers is there but I just read her blog and don’t go there.
    My favorite blogs are Addie, Joy, Claud,yours and a few others. I like to read adoption blogs sometimes especially on break from working. Sometimes I need to be here to connect.

  3. I felt the same way Suz..but sometimes I have to push myself to get out of my comfort zone and GIMH does that 🙂 You deserved to be listed! <3

  4. At first I thought YIKES! Suz on an adoption blog list! Figuring of course the list would be loaded with pro-adoption sites. I went to check and they include a number of first mother and adoptee blogs, not all sickly sweet, hon-and-deary, koolaid drinking sites. Good for them! And congratulations, Suz. P.S. Not likely I’ll go back to GITH though…
