I just wanted to thank everyone here on BYC for sharing a bit (sometimes more) of their lives with the rest of us here. I lurked in the shadows for the a few months and then joined, just to learn about my new chicken addiction. I have sinced shared in births, kids, relationships and illnesses to name a few. It has all been very enlightening. Today, I read posts from people who gave up for adoption or were adopted. Who new this happened so frequently. Boyd, SillyStunt, RedHen & Saddina, I find your foster stories fascinating, though I have no involvement in fostering. ParsonsWife, I look forward to your new posts. I think I'm a little sentimental today. I'm going to get off my mushy soap box now.
