“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
Since I started this blog in 2009, I’ve chronicled dozens upon dozens of experiences, thoughts, and life altering moments… some in more details than others, and some not entirely publicly. The subjects of this blog have morphed so many times that I can barely keep track myself. I’ve expressed grief, frustration, resentment, depression, anxiety, love, heartbreak and happiness. Most of my writing as of late is about my journey to motherhood via domestic government adoption. I’ve wanted to adopt since I was a little girl, and in April of 2013 I began the process.
“Your freedom is not a penance. It’s a reward for all the time you gave up your freedom to take care of others. It is for this reason that you sometimes have had to be reminded not to collapse into a scene that erodes your liberty.” -Michael Lutin
