Reeling

February is a bad month, especially during Leap Year.

I lost my father and now my brother in February.  It makes me feel like my time here is even shorter than it feels.  It’s an unpleasant feeling.

New to me – child adoption spam

It’s not often that I come across a new spam or scam message, but I was a little thrown by one I received earlier this week.  I know families who adopt and how difficult and expensive the process is.  I know that there are scammers out there looking for prospective victims and am sickened by this message.

If you want to adopt, please go through legal means.  Contact a lawyer or agency in your area.  Do not fall for unsolicited messages.  I know how much love you have to give and how much you want a child.  This is not the way.
