Delurk For Me

National Delurking Day/Week is sometime in January, correct? I have never participated.

Lately, I have been posting more. Lots of changes have happened for our now family of three. Blogging has been a therapy for me. Blogging has become very important to our family.

When I first started this blog, I didn't go out and seek readers. I barely commented on others' blogs. But, now I do. I love to follow the stories of others.

So, I am having my own delurking couple of days. My goal is to post comments on the blogs that I read, but never post (or post regularly) on for the next couple of days until my next post. I would like to delurk at least 10 blogs! I ask you to do the same.

I would love to follow YOUR story! Let me know that you are reading. How did you find me?

I found your blog from the ICLW a few months back. I love following your journey. I've been following a lot of journies with fast placements.

I do have a question for you. When you were deciding race, how did you decide? Did you leave it open, if so why? We are discussing race options now and think we have settled but my heart wants one thing and my mind and the future tell me another.

I just found you through another blog that I follow....can't remember which one though! ;o) I'm so enjoying reading about your sweet family. We tried to adopt a little boy several years ago, but the grandmother stepped in and took him. I was heart broken and we just haven't had it in us to try again but I love to read successful adoption stories!

I'm reading too - you're story is so inspirational! I think I found you through Cilla's blog at "It only takes one time...not!". :)

I lurk a lot and am not 100% sure how I found your blog! I am so happy that you have Baby C in your life and I have enjoyed reading your story!!

I'm a guilty lurker although I do comment on occasion. I was so happy when you brought Baby C home - what a miracle and an inspiration. Baby C is about the same age as my daughter, Kaitlin so I like reading along with her developmental milestones as well.

All the best,
Mic

I am one of your lurkers! Love hearing about baby C, she's a doll. Can't remember who I found you through but I was blog-hopping.
Feel free to follow our embryo adoption story.

I know I found your blog through reading another . . . like the others . . . no idea which one!

I know you visited my blog about 4 months ago because you left a comment :-) about Jori's adoption story.

We just finalized her adoption this past wednesday!! We are so excited to be done with this phase!! I know you must be looking forward to that special court date as well!

We do a special day for each of our kids on the day that they were finalized . . . Jadon day is April 1 and Jori day will be October 6. We let them choose what they get to do . . . take them out to dinner, celebrate each year on that date as for us it is a very important day as that marked the day they were officially in our family!

I love reading your blog . . .and it warms my heart to see families being brought together through adoption!

I think I might have found you on ICLW a few months back. I lurk more now than I used to, simply because I check up on my dashboard when I'm bored at work, and I can't post on most blogs from my work computers. So I read, but don't comment because of that. I just happen to post tonight because I am on my home computer!!! Thanks for letting us participate in your journey!

I'm reading!! I either found you thru ICLW or via someone else I follow, I can't remember. But I simply love reading your updates and seeing pics of your beautiful little girl!! My niece lives with us now and is expecting a little girl in December. I can't wait to buy lots of big bows & flower bands for her!!! I show her baby C all the time. We are simply in love with y'all!!! :-) Such a beautiful family!!

I honestly do not know how I found your blog...maybe listed through someone elses?

I'm also a lurker. I found it through Amber's "Our Stork Isn't Great with Directions." I'm one of her friends from school and although I haven't had issues with infertility or dealt with adoption, I enjoy reading about everyone's journeys. Baby C is adorable and I look forward to keeping up with your story. Thanks for sharing it!

Make the most of every minute because it goes by way too fast,my kids are now nearly 6 and almost 2!! and I can't believe how fast the time has gone!!

anyway you can catch us over on,

Louise and family xx

I'm reading, too! I love your story and the joy surrounding Baby C. I'm an ocassional blogger with my own miracle daughter who is 6 weeks old. :-)

I've actually been looking for a baby book for our little one but all the ones in the stores have so many questions that don't apply to our story... i.e. how did mommy tell daddy she was pregnant with me? how was my delivery? etc. Has anyone found one that is more sensitive to adoption - without making adoption be the main focus?

Thanks!
