I was really looking forward to the A to Z Challenge this month, but I'm going to have back out of it. With over 900 bloggers, I know that I won't be missed. I've got rewrites that have to be finished and a query that has to be polished by the end of the month.
Add to that - we're going through the long process of trying to adopt. After not being able to have kids of our, we've made the decision to forgo fertility and just give a home to kids who need one. I want children to love, nurture and raise. They want a mom. Seems like a good fit. The process for county adoptions is long and drawn out - they want to make the right match so the children are home permanently. This means lots of trips to San Diego this month for interviews, parenting classes, etc. I felt that took precedent over the blogfest, no offense to the hosts. It's been a heartbreaking decade and this house is desperate for the sound of children's laughter. So are The Hubster and I. The adoption was the pebble that tipped the scales in favor of the month off.
I wish everyone luck with the challenge - have FUN! After all, that's why we do this. We love to write and it's so much fun! I'll be popping in to read everyone's blogs and comment here and there.
I will see you all in MAY!
