Why am I writing a blog? Because I have a story to tell. And, at some point, I want to write a book about my story. Not for the money but because I want to share my story with others who have walked the same path as I have. It is unique, in that I am not only an adult adoptee but also a birthmother.
A little backstory on me. I am a 51 year old woman. I have three children, two grown sons and a nearly 17 year old daughter. I’m married to a great man and we have a great life together and recently added a corgi puppy to our family. I have a third son, a young man that I placed for adoption a little over 30 years ago. I will get to that in time. I am a special education teacher and have worked with people with disabilities for the majority of my career, which is 26 years. I love it and I love my students. A lot can be learned from them. Are there ups and downs? Of course but it’s all part of this thing we call life.
I’m no author, by any stretch of the imagination but I do have a story to tell so, stay tuned!
