I am really contemplating writing a book about adoption. I am not quite sure my angle etc. Right now while I am hope with Leila would be the time for me to do it. I thought about it while I was pregnant and really think more books are needed on the subject.

Any ideas you would like to share? Any thoughts?

Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!

I read a few books that were written from the birth mother's perspective on her adoption. It really helps with the healing process. I cried my eyes out, but it was so nice to know that there were other birth mother's out there that were having the same thoughts and emotions that I did. I always loved the ones that walked you through the adoption story from the moments BEFORE the conception on to the current day. It's nice to know that you aren't the only one having this roller coaster of emotions...

I think writing a book is a great idea! I would write one, but mine is so abnormal (or "different") than a normal adoption, I wouldn't want to put any false perspectives into a potential birth mother's mind. (Did that make any sense? )

If you are feeling led to write one, I say go for it!! It's a subject that needs ALOT more attention than it receives.

I think that writeing a book is a great idea. I totally agree that there needs to be more books about a Birth Mother's side of everything.

If you decide to go along and do this please let me know if there is anything that you need.
