At BlogHer ’11 I met many wonderful women. Some of the most special were during lunch at the Adoption Birds of a Feather table. I briefly met Aunt Becky from Mommy Wants Vodka. She runs a community blog. Band Back Together. It is unique in many ways, mostly because it talks about some tough subjects. Shedding light on the icky stuff in this world is a good thing. There are tons of educations resources there as well.
Anyhow, Aunt Becky stated they are always looking for contributors. I took her flyer but thought, not me. I’m not good enough. I don’t have a story to tell.
I finally got up the gumption to submit one of my posts. I sent in “Lost Birth Mother Contact” that I had written back in March this year. I did update it slightly adding that in October Family to Family confirmed they still had not heard from L.
