Help needed...

Most of you know that I tend to stay away from 'controversial' topics on the blog and generally keep it 'light'. That's about to change, at least where this post is concerned.

A dear friend of mine who had a LID of May 8 2006, received some heart-wrenching news on Friday.

By all accounts she should be celebrating within the next few months. Her dream was about to come true. The dream of adopting her child. All of that has come to a swift end.

She got divorced two years ago, and she had just completed (what would have been) her last update. Everything was going swimmingly, when all that abruptly ended. She received a call from her agency and she was told that while the CCAA had initially approved her new 'status', they were now reversing that decision.

To say that she is devastated by this news is an understatement. She is crushed, her family is crushed. She needs some help. If any of you know of someone who got divorced mid-stream in their adoption, and successfully adopted their child, please contact her at this email address.

Please take a moment tonight, as you tuck your child into bed, or dream of your future with them, to think of my friend and her horrible predicament.

Thank you.

My brother (AKA Ugly) chose the charm for this month, it's pretty self-explanatory.

Personally though, I wanted to get a series of four charms that spell out UGLY, but he vetoed it...I wonder why. ;)

Feeling blah

I've been feeling really down all (mother's day) weekend. I used to love this day, years ago. I loved spending the day with my family.

The year that we tried to start our family was the same year that we lost my grandmother on mother's day. For the past 12 years it has sucked...a lot. I'm looking forward to the year when we can finally celebrate something.

I hate this feeling of helplessness.
