Well, as you all know already, I have decided to go private with my blog. This really does sadden me. Because the goal with my blog was to educate people about the D.R.C. and adopting children. If you know anyone who would like to read my blog that I have not invited to please let me know and I'll send an invite out.
So, I thought I better give some reasons for making my blog private.
1. Jilma requested it. This alone is enough or me! This is the amazing woman who volunteered her time and expertise to complete our adoption. She also was our escort in Kinshasa. Eventhough, we were delayed weeks, she stayed with me the whole time. I love and respect this woman!
2. I might be to lazy or maybe I just don't have enough time. You see I could remove everything about adoption on my blog and then keep it open. But I don't have the time!
3. Even if I had the time, I just don't want to remove everything that deals with adoption. The reason I started my blog was to help give someone the strength to say yes to LOVE and no the FEAR of adoption. I know it has touched several families and they are now adopting. I just can't imagine not sharing all of my thought and feelings on adoption and the D.R.C.
4. Adoptions are becoming more difficult with the DRC government and with others around the world. The government does not want us adverstising to the world how we are doing adoptions, who is adopting, and whose being adopted. So, in order to protect the integrity of the adoption process I have made my blog private.
And for those who were following regularly, I promise to try and be a better blogger! I am still adjusting to mother of four (two of which are toddlers and climbing on everthing!) and volunteering with OFA. One of these days, I will get my time organized a little better! Or at least I really hope so!
