hi prospective adoptive parents!

So, it seems that most of the rest of the visits to the wide tent these days are folks searching about how to write a "Dear Birthmother Letter."  Welcome, and congratulations on your decision to adopt!  Let me recommend two must-read sites for prospective adoptive parents:

Open Adoption Support, a great place for all members of the adoption triad to meet and share in a safe environment.  This site was designed and is managed by Dawn, who blogs at This Woman's Work (see my review of Dawn's blog here).  Dawn is one of the most thoughtful commentators on open adoption and domestic adoption ethics.  You'll learn a lot from her, more than just how to write a "Dear Birthmother Letter."  Run, don't walk!

hello lesbian la leche league leaders (or LA's, or pissed-off ex-LA's ....)!!

Traffic on this blog is pretty minimal, but I've been noticing that most of the visits lately come from some variation of the search "lesbian la leche league leader."  I am a retired LLL leader, and a lesbian, and if you'd like to be in touch about my experience of becoming a leader (in a word: awful), leave me a comment on this post and I'll be in touch with you.  Courage my dears!
