I live in New York. I like books and coffee and theatre and Mexican food (which I fly to Texas for) and baseball (Go Rangers.) Also, I have a girlcrush on pretty much all of you!
@emilywhite See that confuses me though- if she was using the sonogram law to make an overall point or comparison about the current bill...that's not okay? How can she make a point about anything ever if that's the case?
Can someone tell me how she "broke" the germaneness rule the 2nd time?
@wee_ramekin Haha Ohmygod you're right- that is absolutely not Austin hair.
@wee_ramekin Actually Wendy is a Fort Worth lady. My home city and a place that goes blue from time to time. Also San Antonio and Houston are both blueish cities. I mean. You know. For Texas. :)
This is so amazing! Pretty sure my old journals had the exact same tone.
My journal loves, in order:
1997-99 Leo. "No one will ever love me the way Jack loved Rose."
1999-2001 Joshua Jackson. "No one will ever love me the way Pacey loves Joey."
2000-2002 Han Solo. "No one will ever love me the way Han loves Leia."
Yes please a little more baseball.
@commanderbanana I've been wanting to read that! I should get it from the library I guess- haven't been able to bring myself to buy it in hardback.
@Alli525 It's not a light read mind you. But a LOT of it rung true for me in myself and my younger brother (also adopted).
@adorable-eggplant It's such a good book. It made me break out in hives a bit though. I sense (though she doesn't talk about it much) that my biological mom's experience had some things in common with experiences in the book, and I was born in 1986.
@Alli525 Yeah! The thing I sense with my parents sometimes is "We're parents because of the acts of parenting that we do" rather than "we're parents because we are." So a lot of times they put this massive pressure and guilt on themselves to be the Best Parents Ever. Similarly my brother and I have all kind of issues with Being the Best Children Ever.
Have you read any Betty Jean Lifton? Her Journey of the Adopted Self saved me a lot of therapy money. :)
