This blog is six years old. Wow!

June 20, 2015

On June 15, 2009 I began this blog after much hesitation. I can honestly say it has been and continues to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. My first blog was about my adoption anniversary, and celebrating that special day with my family.

I have to thank my readers and commenters, for without you, this blog would be nothing. So many of you have encouraged and challenged me to keep writing and sharing my heart. Your feedback has been wonderful and your support unending.

Thanks for reading my thoughts and telling your friends, family, and others about this little space on the web. It really means a lot to me.

Thanks especially to my parents, who are always willing to discuss and walk this journey with me. For my Dad specifically, who comments on nearly every post, including writing tips. For my Mom, who shares my posts on her Facebook page. Both my parents have done so much to make my adoption and that of my siblings easier and I cannot convey enough gratitude for that.

And to Sasmita, my wife, who opens my mind and heart even more than I could on my own, constantly challenging me and asking why I think about issues the way I do. She reads all my posts before publication, frequently finding ways to improve them, or saving me from saying something really dumb. I am eternally grateful for you!

I realize my postings are not as frequent, I wish I could write more also. But honestly, writing even one post a month for six years with pretty relative consistency is really difficult.

That makes the fact that so many read and share it more meaningful. Hardly a week goes by that someone does not comment about something I have written or tell me they just found my blog and are really enjoying it. That feedback makes my day.

Please keep reading and commenting.

Thanks readers!

 

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
