So…*Deep Breath*…We Begin.

So I’ve been thinking for a bit about how all this is going to work out because I have a lot of things I want to share with you. So this is what I came up with.

I’m going to be talking about some controversial topics here, not just the whole “Adoption is Great! Everyone should Adopt!” spiel that you hear from some people. People who adopt should know what they’re getting into, and then they can be better prepared for issues when they arise. Not “if” they arise. If your kid seems perfect, there is probably something they’re not telling you. This goes for bio kids as well.

Speaking of which, I’m going to talk about bio kids.  I personally want to have bio kids and adopt, but we’ll see how that works out. Some people think people who do that are selfish. Maybe so. I’m still figuring it all out.

The Natural Parenting and Important Issues section are for everyone, not just parents or people who want to adopt. These are things to consider in every interaction with a child, whether you are a teacher, family friend, or older neighbor.We are the village.

So I’m going to make blog posts with the links and then collect these posts into categories on the right side of the page. I am also going to make some Quick Links pages with just the links that I want to share and possibly a much shorter description of each. I hope that helps.

So here’s (see “Continue Reading” button at the bottom) a basic outline of some of the things we’re going to be talking about. Feel free to comment if you think there are other issues that should be discussed. 😀 I would love to hear from you. ❤
