I should win an award

an award for being the worst blogger ever.


I have completely fallen out of the blog world- haven't even hardly read blogs for a while, much less actually take the time to comment on them.  In the process, I am sure that I have lost most of my blog readers.

And now Bloglines is closing and I am going to lose all my links- so I am SERIOUSLY going to have a hard time then.  (suggestions?)

Also, to be completely honest... I am a little afraid of posting anymore. The burglars got my computer and accessed the cookies to get my credit card information, so does that mean they are reading my blog that is bookmarked, too? I am sure that they don't really care about the goings-on of our life, but I still don't want them to know any more about me than they already do. 

So, for that and a few other reasons, I am thinking about shutting down this blog completely. 

And yet, God is moving in our lives and we have news to share. I want to continue to document our journey for myself, for Holland and for the child that God will someday bless us with. 

So here is the plan...
I am going to delete this blog completely.

Though it has been a blessing to me in many ways, it has also been a source of hurt at times. I know that there are people reading that I certainly never expected to. While the majority of readers love us and support us in ways that we could never expect, there is a small portion of people that have used the feelings that I have shared to hurt me. So, I will have it printed for my own keeping, but then will take it down.

And then I am going to start a new blog for a new chapter in our lives.  Curious enough about what that is to want to follow me to the new blog?

If so, please send me an email (jwoolley513@me.com) or comment on this post. I am going to make the new blog private, so I will need to send you an invite to read it. I know that is a pain and I often slack in reading my friends' private blogs, because of that extra step it takes to sign in. But I just don't feel like I have any other choice.  Leave me the email address that you use to sign in for private blogs. And if you are a blogger, will you please leave your link? I am going to have to set up some other list, once my Blogger is gone and I want to make sure that you are on it.

P.S. Kris asked if you were talking about him in the blog. He said, "do you think she is upset that I read it?" I thought that was funnny! He really enjoys it by the way!

I have never commented and I am not sure how I even stumbled upon your blog but I would love to keep reading and hear your news. I was adopted as an infant and your story has completely captivated me! If that is creepy I totally understand :) I have a blog but it is private (so I understand the not wanting to put eveything out there for strangers), I can invite you if that makes you more comfortable. If not, I wish you and your family the best and I will continue to pray for you!
