Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

My dear friend, Tracey, of Tracee with the cigar smokin, gun toting, puppy avatar (over there on the right) is going to be a MOM!!! She starts visitation with S (11) the first weekend in December and hopefully placed by the first of January. Tracey will be a single mom living in a radical world like so many of us.

I am so happy for her and proud of her decision. She is going to be an awesome mom! Tracey hasn't started her blogging journal yet so please leave her a comment as I've told her that y'all will leave her comments here. She'll read them and feel the blogging love. Hopefully she'll include all of us in her private blog when her journey begins. Tracey has become a really good friend of mine through the joy of the internet and I can't wait to walk through the journey with her and her with new daughter.

Congratulations Tracey and S!!!!!!!!!!

Now it's your turn to show her some love folks.....

P.S. Tracey is going into this with her eyes wide open and using all of us as a resource (among other things of course...). How I wish I'd had known all of you before J came home!

Congratulations, Tracey! That's awesome!

Blogging has connected me to great people already. I know it won't hurt for you to have friends like Lisa and Gerri.

Congratulations Tracey!

We "got" an 11 year old daughter too (and her 13 year old brother with RAD). Two years later it's been an incredible journey.

Lisa is one of the best resources and friends to have as you start on this journey - I don't know how she does it!

Can't wait to get to know you!

I think all moms are wonderful. But, moms who make this choice, alone, have to be the most amazing women. I am so in awe of the women I know, and am getting to know who have done this! Children who come to homes with open arms to one parent {in the adoption relm} are so going to know how much they are loved and needed. {all are loved and needed} But these kids will KNOW it and should NEVER doubt it!

Congrats Tracey!

Tracee said...

Aw, you guys are so great! Thank you all for your good wishes. My life is definitely changing but I feel ready for it. And if I can do even half of the amazing things for S that Lisa has done for J... well, she'll be one lucky kid.

I've read and enjoyed many of your blogs. You've given me the courage to attempt this and a nice dose of reality too. I hope to join you in the blogging world soon. Lisa swears it will be necessary for my sanity!

Thanks again for your comments. I meet S next weekend. It's starting to actually seem real!
