Sad thing of the day

There is no "unknown" answer to circle.
Just Y or N.
I don't know what they weighed at birth.
I don't think anyone does.
I don't know if they have ever stayed overnight in a hospital.
I don't know about their birth or pregnancies.

This makes me very sad.


  1. I know exactly how you feel. It is hard to just write "unknown-- adopted" at the top of the paper and hand it back.

    Those gaps in our children's stories can be killer to deal with.

  2. I hate filling these things out. Even after having Braeden from birth I don't really know most of the answers and they always look at me like I'm crazy. And then I'm reminded I'm not his birth mom, not that this is a surprise, but it still never fails to hit me like a ton of bricks. :(

  3. I have more information on my kids than you do but it's still hard to fill out health forms. I've thought about getting and "Unknown" stamp because I get so sick of writing it!

  4. DW was in the hospital last week and they asked if she was premature- I said I didn't know and they looked at me like I was crazy and then the realization of why hits them- but it is still a reminder that they had a life before us and much of that life will forever be a mystery

  5. It is so nice to "meet" you! We will most likely fly out the 23rd and then return on the 30th. I am sure you are busy busy planning and packing like we are :) Love it!

    Hope to meet at the next fellowship. I am going to add your blog to my adoption blog list on my site.
