What you should know about me

As of the summer 2011 I am very new to blogging.  I chose to blog as a way to self sooth (read: vent) as I parent teens and take on foster care.

I know that sarcasm is known as the lowest form of communication, but sometimes it is all that gets me through the day.  So, I will try directing my sarcasm into my blog and not towards the ones I love.

I will never reveal anyone's real names, so know that any name I come up with is not the actual name of any child in my home, or person in my life.

I blog on an island. My friends and family do not read my blog.  I don't want to hurt any feelings, I do want to tell the truth about my journey through parenting, foster or otherwise,  so yeah.

I so enjoy reading other foster parenting blogs and appreciate the honesty contained within them.  I would not be able to be this honest if I knew that people I know (and I know A LOT of people, where I live everyone knows everything about each others lives), were reading what I wrote.

I am a stay at home Mom and have been since I quite my part time job after my 3rd child was born.
