Reasons to be cheerful...

1.  Finally finished EVERYTHING ....did the final sweep up and dumpster toss.  Everythings in the storage locker and finally I can go to work on Saturdays instead of packing and packing and more packing.  Not to mention cleaning cleaning and more cleaning.  Big heavy sigh of relief. This has got to be the absolutely worst part of moving.  Ugggggh

2. Recently was introduced to my step daughters long lost son that she gave up for adoption (with my prompting) 26 yrs ago.  Have't actually physically met him, but he texted us and since my husband isn't technically savy with sending pic etc. I forwarded many pic's to him of his prospective new fan damily.
I remember years ago I went to a meeting of adult adoptees searching for birth families.  It was a room of very mostly angry people.  All they really wanted was to LOOK like someone.  I sent him many photo's of many people and I especially think he is identical to another family member, so he finally feels like he belongs to something.  I hope it brought him some sense of joy.  My stepdaughter lives in Toronto and this son actually lives here, same city as us.

3. I didn't have to load the dishwasher today after dinner.  Yay....I hate that chore.

Good to find your blog. I am adopted and for me it is constantly seeking that identity even though I was so loved by my adoptive family. Hope it all works out well for all concerned.

What lovely reasons, especially being reunited with your step-daughter's son. I wish you all the very best with building relationships and getting to know each other :)
