As with any 11 year old, this one has moved through various stages.
Baby & Toddler Years
At the start I was an infertility blogger. As time passed and I moved farther away from my own infertility struggles, I morphed into more of a mommyblogger. Along the way, I delved into adoption, and focused my efforts there.
As I explored adoption’s many facets with other adoption writers, I go the crazy idea that I could write a book and get it published. The result, The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption, is now on required/recommended reading lists at adoption agencies around the country.
In more recent years, I write less about my kids, now teenagers (as so often happens to mommybloggers — adoptive or otherwise). I write more about actual challenges of parenting, and practical advice for dealing with those challenges.
Sometimes I get lucky and get to blog about travels and adventures, and sometimes about pop culture, like movies and TV shows. Sometimes I get lucky and get to interview thought leaders. Sometimes, thanks to this blog, I get lucky and meet people who become my dear friends.
Though it’s not polite to ask for gifts, I do invite you to let me know, in a comment below, a memory you have of either me or of a post here on LavenderLuz.com.
Thank you all for visiting, for reading, for commenting, for being part of this space over the last 4000+ days. I look forward to celebrating future blogoversaries with you as the years roll by.
