Today is our 33rd wedding anniversary.  It’s been a struggle and hard work for both of us, but we have made it this far.  God willing, our marriage will last until death do us part. Initially when asked, the minister said no he did not want to marry us; he had good reason to say […]

Dr. Oz Banned

  At 90 years old, my adoptive mother listens to Dr. Oz like he’s a health god and then wants whatever he’s peddling, especially what’s in pill form.  Granted her health could use major improvement, but she’s looking for the magic pill that will remove all her pain and turn the clock back until she […]

Baby Kavon spent the weekend with us with all the crying and dependence that goes with an infant.  Baby Kavon is an anatomically correct electronic male doll that simulates a real baby.  The doll is part of a Life Skills class my son is taking as a high school senior at Barry County Christian Schools.  […]

Eldercare for my Adoptive Mother

Elder-care wrenches the gut for many, but especially for those of us who were raised in poor adoptions.  In all sincerity, I want to do what is right by my adoptive mother.   I believe that it is ordained by God, and that I have the ability to change my adoptive mother’s eternity. As an adopted child, […]

Today is the two year anniversary of our youngest son, Marquell’s, b-father, Dion, passing away; I really liked Dion.  We had heard from the agency what a wonderful son we were adopting but that he showed a few behavior problems when it came to his b-father.  In other words, he lied to see his dad.  […]

Birthday Wishes Mom

Mom sleeps most of the time, so she didn’t know when Tandra arrived.  What I find amazing with grandchildren is that they enjoy what I consider to be annoying work.  We hired a man to tar our driveway, and two of our dogs got outside by accident.  Our mini-dachshund, Oscar, flopped over on his back […]

The Pennsylvania legislature has a bill HB 162 to open original records to adoptees.  Unfortunately, the ACLU and the Catholic Church have teamed up to stop the bill from going through. “Evil thrives when good people do nothing,” by Edmund Burke. Or worse, when good people encourage it.  That goes for the church too.  Roe […]

No one likes to be ignored and trivialized especially those who feel that they have something to share that would make a difference.  If you have been traumatized because of adoption, you want to see changes.  There is an entire herd of us with similar experiences, why ignore us?  Not all of us have pretty […]

Adopt a Dog – Adopt a Baby and Ohio Right to Life wants you to get $10,000

Written by on 17 March, 2014 in Adoption with 0 Comments

First, I love my dogs.  When I had my 14 year old doxie put down in July I cried harder and had a longer recovery time than I did when some adoptive family members passed away.  However, animals and children should not be put in the same category.  The children in the adoption category are […]

Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis Dead Because They’re Black?

U.S. has Declared Open Season on Teenage Black Boys.  My sympathies go out to all the African American mothers of teenage sons across the U.S.  Honestly, I can say I thought that as a country we had come further since Martin Luther King Jr. walked this land than this.  Two teenage black boys shot and […]
