I saw your post this morning and just had to read-a desire to adopt is such a beautiful gift. I had foster parents myself and don't know where I would be without them. Stepping outside yourself is a big step in a growth direction as well as so often, we with weight/food/diet issues can get very caught up in the struggle and lose sight of life. I wish you tremendous blessings on your journey!
I write a blog about my struggle and it has helped as well-one entry in particular has received a lot of response as being very helpful to others, called 'Why We Sabotage Our Own weight Loss' and can help arm us with ammunition over those weak moments. I hope you take a look:
