Once again - honesty prevails

Friends - please go over and give my M3 Sista some love on her most recent post

HERE

And remember what I've been saying (all those expectant moms out there) - I'm so relived to see TRUTH prevail...

Even when it's hard to believe, the process and the wait are the easier part. Slap me for saying it - but it's like believing that the pregnancy is harder than the post delivery five months of sleeplessness and 3am feedings.

When I see these types of posts, I am filled with relief and also with renewed vigor to help women prepare for what is coming. I just said to myself this morning - you can't know until you do it - but maybe you can be a little more prepared through the journeys of others.

Just maybe...

It's good to know we're not alone. Just normal Moms trying to make it post adoption. (or birth)

I hear ya! Just posted (last week) an 'Ugly Truth" rant of my own on my blog. And I appreciate it so much when other moms tell it like it is! Keep it up. :-)

I found your blog while surfing ethiopian adoption blogs! I love it, you are so much like me! I have one birth child Will who is almost two, everyone makes fun of me for telling it like it is(pretty hard most days). I feel if people are prepared for the worst they can only be happy when it turns out a little better. I love that youve taken the time to write about your process. We have been talking adoption for a while now. My sister adopted from China last year so we know a little about the process. Really my question is would you reccommend Dove Agency? They used Great Wall and were not thrilled. We are going for an ethiopan adoption so I really want a solid agency! Sorry for the long comment.

Parenting is one of the hardest jobs there is. Thanks for your honesty. I'm always afraid that when I talk about the hard parts of being a mom, people will think I'm whining, or ungrateful for the huge blessings I have; it's good to know that other mom's face the same challenges I do.

There is another GREAT post about this here http://herdegenfamilyadventures.blogspot.com/2008/08/joy-of-working-quietly.html
