I need friends!

I need friends. I need friends that are going through this whole special needs adoption thing. I know that because I know I don't have it in my life right now. I live in a small town, and there isnt' a large variety of lifestyles in some ways. [I love my town though].

I dont' make friends easily I guess. Probably because I don't have time to do much outside of family and being a farm wife. That's okay, I love my life. But I realize that for all my desire to have friends to confide in and cry with and vent with and share fears with and share joys with now, once my girls are home it will be IMPERATIVE!

My blog is kind of boring. I just don't have that exciting of a life... busy, but not exciting to most [I love it though!]. :) I can get to talking your ear off, but I am not much of a writer.

If you are feeling the same let me know. The internet can be a curse or a blessing, but in this case I see it as a blessing.

For those that are regular visitors, you mean so much to me! I am so happy to share in your journeys... past and/or present! Thank you. :)
