Several bloggers are posting about their adoption story and the difficulties that arise from adopting a child that was previously in an orphanage (thanks for the challenge Amy!). Many bloggers 'sugar coat' the adoption and bonding process so it doesn't appear too negative or under-appreciative. We are no different in this respect. Our process has not been an easy one, but we continue to work on it every day. By working on it, I mean it is WORK.
Jackson is very active, and extremely sensitive. Although I do not feel comfortable posting our struggles, we do have them...and we have them a LOT. Below are a few of the bloggers that are posting (very bravely) about their struggles. We have many of these same issues, and try on a daily basis to work them out. We love our son, and I feel like the luckiest Mom alive. However, we are NOT the Cleavers - you are not alone!
