My issue of the Adoption Constellation magazine appeared in my mailbox this afternoon. I felt a pang of regret as I pulled it out of the box.
I had been asked to contribute a piece, based on a earlier blog post, on adoption language and communication. I accepted the assignment but was unable to deliver on it due to my wedding and competing life priorities. The editors were understanding. I was disappointed – in myself.
Now that I flip the pages and see the other contributors – Claud, Mary Anne Cohen, Dr. John Raible, Meg Jeske, I find myself even more disappointed.
I really need more time in my life.Â (I recently had to turn down yet another adoption themed gig due to my full life. I suppose that is a good problem to have, a wonderful full life, but I do feel sad at times that I cannot find more time in my days.)
Still hoping the last issue comes online in the future. Will link to it if it does. I really like the piece Dawn wrote on adoption reunion relationships and the online world. It spoke to me (which is probably why Dawn interviewed me for the article.)
