Well, I'm getting another round of hate mail (or, I guess I should say "hate comments") on my "Adoption Stuff" post below. Often when I'm writing posts that aren't just 'this-is-what-we-did-today'-posts I fret in my heart as I click "publish" on Blogger... because I just know those anonymous hateful hurtful comments will probably come pouring in. Folks, I've gotta say: I do sometimes wonder why we make this blog public. I think about just stopping it all together. But then I think about the hundreds of people out there who have found some kind of solace/inspiration/interest in our stories --and I think about people and families who have inspired us along our own journey-- and I keep plugging away. I don't know how long we'll keep doing it though, it is hard to stay strong to put ourselves out there like this. As for the post below.... I'm rejecting the anonymous hate mail and not publishing the anonymous hurtful comments. They are just too nasty to validate them by clicking "publish." I just need to say, though, for the record: we know a lot about the details of our sons' births. We do not share these details. Until K & O are old enough to handle all the information, Braydon and I will remain the only people outside of Haiti who know the whole story of our boys. Trust me when I say: our boys were not breastfed. On another note: we're trying hard to teach our four-year-olds that age-old golden rule: do unto others as you would have done unto you. To all of you Hate Mail Writers out there-- please try to remember this golden rule yourselves as you're reading our blog.
