A Labor Of Love Reviews The Best For You

Sometimes I am just compelled to contact people about my book. I reach out, say a few words, and then I ask for an address to send them a copy. I believe in my book, and it is best to hear from the source what an amazing thing this little book is doing for so many people. I contacted Tina a while ago, then found her email agian last month. I sent her a copy, and she was so very gracious to write this about The Best For You.

Thank you Tina for answering that first email. ;)

Wow, this is so offensive to me. You really blow my mind. I cannot imagine having such little caring for my own flesh and blood and being so goddammed goofy about the whole thing.

It is sick.

I mean good for you, you don't give a shit. It really makes me sick.

Thanks for coming and posting your feelings. Such a shame that you are offended by this, perhaps you should read the book and then tell me I did not give a shit. Do you know me? Have you met me? Had a conversation with me? Understand why I placed my children for adoption? I don't think you do. If you did know me, if you took the time to ask some questions that might help you understand what it is that you do not see, well then perhaps you would think differently.

I have been attacked all my life by obtuse people who do not know what it is like to walk in my shoes, and for that I have no ill feelings. It takes a lot more balls to ask those difficult questions and try to hear other people than it does to attack them. I do not see myself as being goofy about all of this, but instead I am trying to help others who may be in the same position feel not so alone in their journey. I also know when to say "Thank You" to someone who is kind enough to share their thoughts about my book with their readers.

Either way, I do appreciate that you used your name and did not hide behind the Anon like so many do on my blog. And I will not apologize for being a strong woman who DOES care about my own flesh and blood. (Just for the record, my children do know who I am, why I did what I did and they have all told me that they understand and appreciate my heart. Those are the opinions that really matter to me, the thoughts and feelings of my own children.)
