I love to write. I have always enjoyed writing, whether it was in a journal, a story, or a poem. I guess I just never realized that it was good enough to share with people or even publish.

I really started writing a lot after I placed my son Charlie for adoption. Before that, I wrote off and on writing occasional poems or journal entries about being the mother of a child with special needs, but becoming a birthmother is what helped me find a writing voice and gain confidence in writing.

Now that I have found that writing voice, I’ve realized that the world is pretty open to me. I can write and actually get paid for it! I am not limited to writing only about adoption. I can write about anything and everything I want. And sometimes, the writing is just for me. I get something out of it regardless of whether or not anyone else does while other times my purpose in writing is to inspire or inform others. And other times, it’s writing that I share whether it be on this blog or an actual article that I’m getting paid to write.

For those of you who wish to read more of what I have written, I thought I’d post links to various articles, poems, and essays here on this page. I’ll break things up by categories where appropriate.

NOTE: This page and list is a work in progress. I’ll be adding to it because unless I stop writing all together, there will always be new content!
