    I have finally read your blog from beginning to now. You're right (one of your posts), it has made me cry. But it hasn't made me think of you as an unhappy person - I've cried because I have felt some bit of what my adopted daughter feels. I've copied a lot of it and sent it to her.

    What would you say to a 16yo girl, adopted age 9 with 3 birth siblings (2 younger, and 1 who abdicated all responsibility as eldest and acted as a younger) and has all those attachment/ rebellion/ trust/ adoption issues? She has been living in a girls' home since January due to such self-destructive behavior that we didn't think she'd live to 18 at home.

    What could anyone have done or said when you were 16-17-18 to get through to you?

    Your blog is really a blessing, both to adoptive parents, and to adoptees. You were already in such a large family that maybe you never thought you were the "only one" with a story like yours, I don't know. I just know that my Maria feels validated every time she reads about someone with a past like hers. Thank you, and keep posting - both the good/happy and the bad/sad.

    I am so green with envy. Tiffany is totally not going to have another.

    Congratulations, with all my heart.
