Saying goodbye

Hi everyone,

For some odd reason last night I was laying in bed just feeling very uncomfortable about all the personal things about myself I have out there on the net. Especially all the pictures of my precious little girl. I don't know why it came up but I wonder if maybe God is telling me something. There has to be a reason why I'm feeling like this all of a sudden as there was nothing to trigger these feelings, no incidents or anything like that. And then this morning I found out there are some security issues with one of my Yahoo groups and I wonder if that is confirmation of my feelings at this time. Now that I think of it my adoption agency group has just stopped putting pictures of our children on their group homepage. Just another piece to the puzzle.

So as much as I hate to do this, I've had SO much fun doing this blog and getting to know some wonderful people, I'm going to delete my blog in the next few days. I'll still visit yours :-) so hopefully I can keep in touch with many of you. Thanks for all the wonderful comments about my daughter and other things I have posted.

May the referral wait speed up as 2006 rolls on! I wish the best to everyone with their adoptions.

I am sad to see you leave, but yet I do understand your feelings. I have wrestled with the same conflicting feelings myself. I wish you all the luck in the world and thank you for sharing your beautiful daughter with all of us. She has been an inspiration for me during the waiting period.

I hope our journey speeds up soon and we will all have our little ones home.

Good luck to you on your journey.

Hi Eileen,

I hope you let me know when you receive your referral for Allison... I would love to see her photo as well as a snap of your 2 girls together!

Good luck with the rest of your journey!

Hi Eileen - you'll be missed! Have you thought about converting to typepad because that blogging has a password to limit who can see your journal. I do wish you well in the future though!

I've enjoyed your blog and I'm sorry to see you go. I compare posting on the internet to walking through the mall. Strangers see you there too.

I feel safer on the internet because it's not face to face and it's not in my home town and nobody can follow me home!

You also have the added security of knowing that you're literally hiding in plain sight with millions of other bloggers. It's like being a pebble on the beach. You're in plain sight to anyone who cares to look closely but to everyone else, you don't stand out at all.

Still, you have to do what makes you comfortable. I wish you well and I'll miss seeing the ending to your happy story when your referral rolls around.

All the best,
