Ask me anything

What is your favorite part of foster care?

Those moments when I forget that they have to go home. When there is only the "now" and it is great.

When the twinkle comes back into their eyes.

When you see that first real smile and hear the first real laugh

When you see them overcome something they have been battling for so long

Thank you for this question!

Agoraphobi defines Agoraphobia  as "abnormal fear of being in crowds, public places, or open areas,sometimes accompanied by anxiety attacks." It also goes on to say "a pathological fear of being in public places, often resulting in the sufferer becoming housebound." 

  • I really dislike leaving the house 
  • despise being in a large group, especially when most if not all are strangers
  • I have this really odd thing where I can't stand in a walk way or feel like I am in the way of others.
  • I often talk myself out of leaving the house, even if the event I am leaving for sounds fun or is something that I REALLY need to get done, like grocery shopping.
  • Parties usually stress me out and I try and melt into a wall so I am not noticed
  • Being the center of attention makes me blush
  • Strangers are scary
I think I feel comfortable enough diagnosing myself with with agoraphobia. Will someone please come kidnap me and make me social and all that normal stuff. Thank you!

The Hairy Hubby and I have decided that the only way we think we can afford adoption right now is a Private Adoption.  That means no agency, just us, lawyers and our birth family. That means we need to find our birth family. We need to get our name out there. We need help. I want to set up a blog for us on blogger and I would love some help and tips. I need to do pass along cards (let me know if you want some) we need word of mouth, tips and advise. Please help if you wish. Ask questions.. Thank you!
