Things have been crazy on the home front. But little messages like this sure make everything disappear. What a blessing to have such an open relationship with him and his family. Because we sure are blessed by his presence.
In summer 2017 I was approached by the program director for the Florida chapter for Big Brothers Big Sisters and she said that I apply for it because they needed more big brothers naturally I said no way I suck with kids but she reminded that everyone is different and can learn something from each other so I swallowed my pride and applied in July 2017 and waited until February 2018 when I received the phone call that I had been matched with a potential little. And naturally I was nervous because I thought what if the kid doesn’t like me or thinks I’m boring or what if we have absolutely nothing in common. But it’s a full year later I’m proud to say that I am Big Brother. And always will be.

As many of you may or may not know New York recently joined the list of states that allow the murder of children 36 weeks in the womb.
Then this week Delegate Kathy KL Tran of the Virginia House of Delegates, D - County of Fairfax 42nd District proposed a bill that did not contain a time frame on opportunities for abortions.
When Miss Tran was asked if a woman who is dilated and in the process of delivery would be able to get an abortion she was unable to look the man in his face, struggled to find words while fumbling at her papers...to then admit there was no time frame and yes indeed even when dilated to give birth her bill allows for the murder (abortion) of that child.
Twitter has been going crazy of course. @marchforlife has been doing such a great work for so long and thanks to them I found out about this issue. I called the District office of Delegate Tran, let her my real name and phone number and an invitation to have an open dialogue about her bill. She is a mother herself and I am just curious is that’s the reason she struggles with the wording or if she herself doesn’t not actually believe in her bill herself.
This man who did not know I was adopted nor a birth mother gave me some truly amazing content to blog about, as this is apparently how people actually think. I’ve been living with a fake sense of reality. Assuming people loved others like this community loves others.
So thank you to all of my amazing followers and friends that I have met through this community. Thank you for your support. Know our work is not done. Continue to speak out. Find a local office of @marchforlife and see how you can get involved.
Let me make it clear. I am pro choice...The choices are Life & Adoption, because I am not pro murder.
Can I just brag about Samuel’s parents for a second.
This past spring we went to a Baseball game together when the stadium was celebrating adoptive and foster families.
This year as I will be out of the country during the Family Night my parents will be taking Robinson to go spend the day with Sam and his parents. And both sides are perfectly ok with that.
Normally when I ask my mom if she wants to do something it takes a while to get a response. So I warned S that it might be the next day I get a reply so I would let her know.....I sent a text to my mom and 90 seconds later “that sounds great we’d love to!” Lol
I love that everyone gets along. They are so willing to do whatever it takes to keep this family together and I’m so honored to be doing life with them.

She is mine mine alone Destiny we are soulmates and I will have a lufe with you i dont want no one else I wanna spend my life with you and have kids💙
My heart can’t process how absolutely adorable this kid is.
How is it possible that he is almost 3...look at this transformation.... and I have to admit he looks more like his birth father now with the shorter hair.
I think about him (Sam)every day. And I have to wonder if his birth father ever thinks of him.
I feel bad for him sometimes, like bro you have no idea what you’re missing!
He used to fight tooth and nail to try and get visits with his first BM and their son, he stayed in a relationship he hated to keep involved in his 2nd, yet when you have NONE of the responsibilities you still can’t find a single minute to even drop off medical paperwork to make sure you’re third is at least looked out for in the long run?! I don’t get it. I guess every now and then when I see how amazing this child is that I get angry all over again. I get the feelings all over again. And I get the giant nasty twist in my side that chases me to ache everywhere when I realize here are answers I will never have, for either of my kids, because of this male actin childish and disappearing.
Why is this something that I am even thinking this far into it?! Part of the reason that I placed was so that Samuel would have two parents. That was so important to me. I didn’t give Robinson that opportunity and I didn’t want to rob a second child of the chance of having a complete home. But what I never thought about before Samuel was how much not having a father was going to affect Robinson.
Now when I watch this kid grow up and know there is a man out there choosing to be absent from these boys lives breaks me. I feel like I failed, and mostly failed Robinson for not pushing that relationship. It’s not my responsibility. It’s completely his and his loss. However his lack of “trying” also causes damage to both these boys by being absent. Maybe if I marry I wouldn’t feel this way.
But my fathers relationship to me is so important. It’s been vital in making my brother an amazing man and admirable role model. It’s what’s making my son into a man of great character, and it’s something that I’ve accidentally robbed from one. It kills me sometimes. And I hate I care about that mans feelings.
