Be My Guest...

Sometimes Mama needs a blogging break. So I've started the "guest blogger" series. Here's the very first edition.

"I must admit, it's a little unsettling to write publicly like this. Jackie has been teasing me for some time about not writing anything for the blog. But the truth is that while it is therapeutic for her, it's awkward for me.

That being said, here I am. The Dad.

I guess all I really want to say is that I miss my little girl more than words and can't wait to go get her. I know that everyone out there going through their own adoption knows exactly how I feel. I am very grateful for the support the community has shown. Even though I don't write on the blog, I sure do read them. I also want to thank friends and family for their love and support. It has meant
everything to us. Now, if we could just get that phone call..."


If you'd like to be a guest blogger, email me at jmomac@mac.com. You can write about anything—your thoughts...a story...something funny... anything you think Lucy would want to know about while we were waiting for her arrival.

Welcome guest blogger, Jeff! ;-)

Jackie, I think it's a marvelous idea to line up guest bloggers. That way, you know the blog will get covered in your absence when you go to get Lucy. Now where's that call?!

waiting for referral (from Taiwan) so that we can finally see our daughter's face and show her brothers and sister!!!

That was totally sweet. Lucy and the boys are so lucky to have you for a Dad. Now if I could just convince my hubby to write on our blog :) Here's to us all getting our calls, very, very soon!
