So I've changed my mind...

I follow about 30+ blogs daily. Blogs of women struggling with infertility, mommies, those waiting to adopt, those who have adopted, friends, etc. I would say only 1 or 2of these blogs are restricted like I have made mine. So after thinking long and hard and changing a couple security options, I've opened my blog back up. I really have enjoyed my 98 readers but stupid blogspot limits it to 100 readers total and I think that my journey (especially with our adoption) is something that can help others and I hate to think that no one else can read and learn from my life because of a "number of reader's cap" that blogspot has.

So for now, I'm OPEN. :) Tell your friends. Just kidding. Keep reading and commenting. I love to hear from all my real life friends and blog friends.

Welcome back! I'm glad you are back in my google reader! Being a mommy is definately a learning process. You will make mistakes, we all do but we can't beat ourselves up about it. I'm sure Declan will be fine at the doctor, I will keep you in my prayers.

It's so great to be able to read your posts again. I was wondering about you the other day. Looks like Declan is doing great and you are loving mommyhood. So happy for you guys!

jeez!!!!! It's been a while for me and omg Ashley Declan is just the sweetest, most chewable little baby on the planet!!!!! I cannot take how adorable he is! And I cannot believe he is almost 3 months old- time is flying and it's so hard to hold on to every second!
Glad to see you've opened your blog back up- your blog has become a huge example for so many and such a wonderful success story in faith, trust and the journey to be parents. And I remember your very first post :) And look how far you have come!
You rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hoping that baby Declan is feeling better :)

I'm glad you're open again! I found you and commented long ago and as an adoptive mom, was interested in following your story. Then, I got so far behind on blogging and suddenly saw you in comments on other blogs...that you had a baby!!! I've tried to come over and see and it was closed! Just happened to try again tonight to see what would happen! HA!
So super excited for you! He is so fine and precious!! I know you are in heaven!
Blessings! Here's to your wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

Yeah, I am so glad you opened back up and commented on mine because I had been following your journey too. Then one day I logged on to see if the match went through ( i was dying to know) and you had gone private. It brings me a lot of hope to see your pictures and see how happy you all are!
