Gratuitous Bethie photo I used to follow lots of adoption blogs. I'd ride with them thru the nightmarish roller coaster adoption process, delight with them when they got their referral, take note of their what-to-pack posts, cry when they got their kid in their arms, rejoice and share on facebook when the child was finally HOME, and keep checking in to see how the family was transitioning. One thing I always noticed, is that after they got back home, those moms had the NERVE to just QUIT POSTING!!! . . .
