If you can't stand the fire, get out of the kitchen.
Here's the breakdown of what happened this afternoon:
Christina (that's me, in case you're already confused) wrote a blog post. This one in fact.
Melynda (that's one of the sweetest, kindest first mothers you'll ever meet..in case you're STILL confused) commented on the Cabbage Patch Kids post.
Megan (that's who wrote the Cabbage Patch Kids Post) commented back on her post, addressing Melynda, then decided it'd be a fabulous idea to come to Christina's blog (still me..lol) and copy and paste her comment to Melynda on the post that was blasting her for her Cabbage Patch Kids post.
Christina comments in response.
Cassi comments in response.
Megan splits and takes her comment with her. *Poof*..be gone.
Several people are confused about what all the hubbub (LOVE that word) was about.
So, for you, my dear confused minions and followers...here is the comment that sparked the poofiness:
I will repost the same comment that I left to you in response to your comment on my post because truly- I do have nothing but the best of intentions. And then I will not comment further because you are absolutely entitled to feel how you want about me and blast me in a public forum if you'd like.
"Hi Melynda. Thank you for taking the time to comment. First, let me say thank you for the sacrifice you made in choosing an adoption plan for your child. From friends of mine who have placed their children with adoptive families, I know that this is a decision that lasts a lifetime and is not easy.
I feel like maybe you misunderstood my intent. I have biological children as well. I included them in the statement that it would be easier to explain that they, as well, came from the cabbage patch simply because as a parent it is difficult to have certain conversations with children. Not that we don't need to have those conversations, just that they are hard. I mean, truly? Who wants to think that their parents ever had sex.
If you have been a reader here for very long, you would know that we DO have those hard conversations ON A REGULAR BASIS. We do NOT gloss over the fact that our son has a natural mother. She is revered in our home. We talk about her often. Perhaps, I could direct you to some other posts that I've written about this so that I'm not being judged on one sentence instead of the breadth of how much I do respect birth mothers.
Again, thank you for the choice that you made for you child. I have nothing but respect for you."
I do not delete comments that attack me, nor will I delete comments that attack my friends. They say that your eyes are the windows to your soul? I say, it's your words.
