I have removed comments today from the one reader who continues to be negative, present as an expert (are ANY of us experts in this??), and in this one comment which was repeated twice was patently wrong. Using this blog as a forum for disinformation is something I can't allow. I have never removed someone's comments before, believing sincerely that just because someone disagrees with me doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed to voice it. But this person, who continues to remain anonymous and seems almost gleeful at our current dilemma in addition to wanting to make their personal situation seem the norm (it is not) is no longer going to be allowed to post on our blog.
In the interest of honesty, I wanted to share that decision with you all. It is not in an effort to keep things looking "rosey"...surely the past several days have been a testament to that. But one person's personal situation (including our own) does not mean every older child adoption turns out that way. There are hundreds a year that are splendid successes. Dee's blog at the
"Crab Chronicals" to the left is just one example. Whether ours will be or not remains to be seen. Each situation is as unique as the personalities involved.
Thanks for your understanding. Anonymous, don't bother commenting anymore as it will be immediately removed, regardless of the nature of the comment.
