I hope everyone will venture over and visit Surviving Adoption Loss.
The writer of this blog is not only amazing in the use of her words, her ability to draw a reader in and make them a part of the emotions that center her posts. She is also an amazingly caring woman, who offers the same insight and kindness to those who struggle with the grief and loss of adoption.
It has been almost six months now since I first learned of my son's abuse. Six months in which I would have not made it through the hardest times if it wasn't for her support, her understanding.
She never judged, never gave me the old lines of being "grateful" or "thankful" or "getting over" the pain eating away at my heart and soul. She has always known, in the way only a mother who has experienced loss through adoption, can know, the right words, the right support to get me through some of the hardest times I have faced in this newest avenue of my journey.
Through another forum, I was blessed with the opportunity to get to know this wonderful woman. Granted an amazing friendship with someone who reached out to me during my lowest times, offered a gentle hand to guide me when I needed it most. A comforting companion to lead me through the dark pain adoption brings about.
And on top of that, I've also found someone who has a great talent in her words. In her stories of what it is like to lose your child through adoption. Her contributions to other forums have helped so many and now, thankfully, she has taken the step to join the blogging world. So that more of us may find the wisdom in what she writes. The deep emotion in her stories of loss and grief.
My life received a great gift when I first made contact with her and now so many others will recieve this same gift as she shares her feelings and her story through her powerful words and deep portrayal of the emotions that come with those who live and lose through the world of adoption.
