Regarding ‘Mother May I’ amendments…

By TAO

The post below might seem contradictory to other posts where I have talked about the expectant parents needing the most protection during an adoption seeing as they’ve already started off on the wrong foot so to speak, from a point of being in crisis…

Grandpa and Dad…

By TAO

(not really adoption related)

Dad was a storyteller.  He loved telling stories about his relatives, his dad, other people, things that had happened that he found interesting.  All told with his slowly spoken words that highlighted his dry wit, they also included tiny little interesting tidbits woven in.  I never stopped and wondered where his gift of storytelling came from, until I began going through grandpa’s last journal, an odd collection of deep thoughts, ramblings, intermixed with stories of yesteryear, and poems, then it became obvious that dad got his gift of storytelling from his dad.

Could it be?

By TAO

While doing those seemingly endless mundane chores around the house, I suddenly had this bizarre thought out of the blue – so here I am throwing it out for discussion.
