Adoption: Talk about putting your heart out there



Doing my due diligence while I'm catching up over here. Burying the lead, as we say in the newsroom, on the biggest news of 2017, and perhaps the biggest news of my entire LIFE.

Michael and I announced to the world in October that we are pursuing domestic infant adoption to grow our family. You can keep up with all things adoption on the website we created: danamichaeladopt.com.

I know I've shared here and there the desire that I've had for a long time to be a mom. I don't remember how much detail I've gone into about our journey so far, but if you watch the video above, you'll be all caught up!

Bottom line: I am certain we are on the path that God planned all along for our family and I can't wait (figure of speech... obviously I can wait... and that's what I'm doing right now) to see how the story unfolds.

-----

After years of pouring my heart out on the internet, I've cocooned over the last couple of years. I've written though, about how I never stopped writing. I thought about opening up my journal and posting pieces of it here. I posted one. This whole time I've had this tug in my heart to share my story, to be a good steward of my story. I've been trying to discern what that means in my current place. I've thought about starting a YouTube channel. I've thought about starting a Podcast. I wasn't confident about any of the ideas. None felt sustainable. 

I've worried about things like:
  • When will I have time to do this?
  • Who will care? My life is so boring now.
  • Learning new technical skills is overwhelming right now. My brain hurts.
  • What am I seeking? Am I doing this for me? If so, as my friend Jo says, "nay nay."

So, here I am. Stumbling out of the gate yet again. Unsure of what I'm after, of what success in this venture looks like. Thankful for a space to share my thoughts and the freedom to do so, no matter what they are. 

It turns out pursuing adoption means really putting your heart on the line. You have to share intimate details of your life. On forms, to social workers and lawyers, in a profile book that is an accurate portrayal of us but not screaming "pick us, pick us!" and in the future - with a child's first family. A family that puts their ultimate trust in us, choosing us to raise their precious baby. That love and sacrifice leave me speechless. 

It feels really vulnerable because it is really vulnerable. But it's so worth it. Please feel invited to come along with us as we put one foot in front of another on this journey. (You can follow the link above to get to our adoption website where we'll be posting updates.)

But here is a good news to everyone who has been a victim of INTERNET SCAM❗️
You can get your money back from the scammer, and can even get more than what you lost, No Authorities will not been involve just the genius of our skill.

WHO ARE WE⁉️
We are PYTHONAX ! A group of skilled Hackers who have dedicated our time to helping individuals to get back thier money from INTERNET SCAMMERS. A research was carried out and an approximation of more than $3billion USD annually was said to be lost to INTERNET SCAM. This is so wrong and that’s why we have decided to help individuals get thier money.

HOW DO WE OPERATE⁉️
We use a RAT(Remote Access Trojan) to take over the SCAMMER(s) device(Phone or Computer) and take back your money by accessing their Bitcoin wallets or Bank Account.

According to a newly published report by Informes de Expertos, titled “Informe del Mercado Latinoamericano de Enzimas de Alimentación y Pronóstico 2021-2026”, it is estimated that the market for feed enzymes in Latin America will grow at a CAGR of around X% during the forecast period 2021-2026. One of the important factors propelling the market is the rising concern over animal health. Using feed enzymes improves digestibility, impacting positively on livestock performance and reducing feed costs. Other factors contributing to the market growth include the benefits that feed enzymes offer in preventing metabolic disorders in animals, the positive effects they have on the environment and the rising preference for high-quality feed. Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina are the major regions where the growth prospects have been analyzed by the report.

Informes de Expertos (IDE) latest report, titled “Mercado Latinoamericano de Aromaterapia, Informe y Pronóstico 2021-2026”, finds that the Latin America aromatherapy market is expected to grow at a CAGR of X% during 2021-2026, owing to the rising public inclination towards home remedies and natural treatments and use of aromatherapy at home. Furthermore, increasing incidences of lifestyle disorders and stressful schedules of people are stimulating the use of essential oils as remedies to improve physical or mental state and promote health and well-being, thereby driving the growth of aromatherapy. Demand for alternative treatment due to side effects of several pharmaceutical drugs also contribute to industry growth. In fact, in the present times, aromatherapy and reflexology are together being used as complementary therapy for people with cancer.

Hi everyone, I will want you to take a little time to read this it might be of help to you. How do I recover my crypto from a scammer. The Question is Does/or has anyone been successful with Crypto Scam Recovery? My Answer is Yes, I have successfully recovered my crypto from scammers on two different occasions .my first experience.

I invested $35,000 worth of crypto. With a forex broker who I met online since I usually see several promos on his page, I felt he was a good one and a reliable one at that. After sending my crypto I felt a little discomfort because I realized how will I just sent such a high amount of money to a total stranger to who I know nothing of or his location, but I felt I wasn't the only one since I have seen several promos of his. So my investment was to last for three weeks firstly Then a possible renewal after my ROI, but three weeks came I expected my money the first day it never came, the second day still nothing and on the third day I reach out to them requesting for my money, but I was told they were having little problem with their sever and I was told to be patient for a week and my ROI would be sent to me, but a week past and few days I reach out to them again and. This time I got no response I tried for several days with no positive reply and eventually I was told to send some more money to my account to enable, which I did, I sent a total amount of $5000 that was what I was asked to do. Immediately again every connection was lost I cant even reach their web page anymore. I told this to a few of my friends and that was when I got the hint that it was a scam. I was highly devastated and confused I didn't know what to do. I went to the cops but they couldn't help because they had no lead on the whereabouts of the case or broker. Then I Went back online to made several research on how to retrieve cryptocurrency because I have heard a lot of times how people recovered their money but I wasn't so sure about that, I know after reading several pages I should have a little knowledge on how to go about that. And I did just that I saw several Recovery agencies and their reviews, but I decided to go for D-HACKER Group Hackers, I wasn’t too sure of them at first about Fund Retrieve, as I was still very scared to fall another victim of Scam, but base on the way people was commenting on there job well done, I decided to be on a safe side by contacting someone who commented, to know if they are real or not. Believe me it still amazes me how they went about it but am just grateful they did. So I'll advise you also to do the same, reach out to them make a formal complaint, don’t hope they will get your job done within the time given by them. and Yes there work price is reasonable, I bet you it worth it. They have helped me recovered both stolen funds from the broker scammers, and I am sure they can help you recover yours too. To save your time go straight by Email dhackersplatform@gmail.com go and get your worried solved

Note they are not limit to just Recoveries only they can do other hacking stuff as well, as I read many other testimonies on School
Results upgrading, credit score repairs as well fixing crime records, this people are awesome with their job. Try them and thank me later
