If you haven't found Ariel's blog yet, please go there today. Her voice is essential to the adoption conversation.
She writes: Even all these months later, it doesn’t take a lot for grief to
overpower me. I don’t know how to think about him, this little person
that I can’t bring myself to address anymore, and not have it ruin my
day. I’m starting to think that a blog is not enough as an outlet. I hoped
it could be enough, but it has also enabled me in ignoring my feelings
and never talking about him in real life, which doesn’t lend well to my
sanity. But I can’t do anything else, not when everyone else is
completely fine with the omissions, and I am literally the only one who
notices a big hole everywhere.
