When I started this blog back in 2007, I had a one year old Woobie. Papa2Roo and I had adopted him at birth and were in one of those “semi-open” adoption arrangements that equated to being pretty darn closed. At that time we were really not happy with that arrangement, and this space offered me a place to wax poetic about all the things I wanted “Mama N.” to know about Woob and what we wanted to know about her, and just wanting some connection that was so terribly lacking.
Read through a little bit further and you’ll find that we’ve made that connection and are in a fully open adoption with all its blessings and pitfalls. We have become family. And, because we’re family, things aren’t always perfect and we are bumbling through as best we can. Sometimes we get lucky and sometimes we need a do-over. Because we know how important all this is for the Woob–now and always–no matter what he one day decides to do with it all.
Welcome to our story.
