Ugh - Let"s hope this is a small blip!

Did you have fun at the race?

I wonder if the change in routine, plus the approaching anniversary of her arrival, was too powerful a trigger for her?

I'm glad you got some time away.

Hopefully she can get back on track. Was the race fun at least?

I have taken a several-month break from MDC and I have realized that I don't wish to be a part of the MDC community anymore.

I wanted to say goodbye and thanks to everyone who supported me so much in my struggles with Desta.

Desta and Ramona are currently at a camp for kids affected by or infected with HIV. Efram and I are spending the week hanging out together. Next week Desta goes back to school and the little kids and I will get back to our routine.

Best of luck to all of you.

Not sure if you'll see this but if you do, I wanted to tell you that you'll be missed. In fact, you already have been. But, I'm sure you have your reasons.

Yes, same here. I have loved your presence here.

You will be missed. I have been wondering how you, Desta, and the rest of your family have been.

I wish the best for you and your family.

I don't think I've ever talked to you directly, but I defiantly will miss (and have been missing) reading your posts (and your blog). Wishing you and your family the best!

hoping all is well with you and yours, you'll be missed!

I will miss you dearly. DEARLY. I am sad, for us. But glad for you that you've made a decision that feels right for you. (Wish I could break my internet habit enough myself to stay away when I intend to do so.)

I have missed seeing your posts and also reading your blog lately. Strangely enough I was thinking about your blog this evening, that I hadn't see any posts in a long time (I read in a feed reader) and logged onto MDC to see this message, but when I went to visit the blog it was closed to the public as well. I have always appreciated your perspective as someone who may someday need to deal with those issues in my own family as we adopt. I am sad to see you go.

All the best for you and your family!

I'm sorry to see you go. Thank you for your wisdom and support here. You will be missed. Wishing you peace.

I think that's appropriate and, if she were here, I think she'd think it was pretty funny.

wishing you the best, dm!

I'm so sad to hear this. In fact, I was looking for your blog the other day and saw it was private.

You have no idea who I am as I'm mainly a lurker. I just wanted to say that without you I'd never have found my son. I saw your link to Chances by Choice on the Adoption Resources sticky thread and the journey began from there (although we didn't utilize Chances for Choice but it allowed me to see what is possible). Because of you I fell in love with AHOPE and I found a precious, precious child who I'm absolutely in love with.

Good luck with your kids and thank you for making a difference!

I hope you would consider staying. Maybe just lurk for a while and post when you feel the need. I was just wondering about your the other day- and Desta. Your posts have helped me in many ways- learning to parent my Anna. I'm sorry to not have said that to you back when you were actively posting.

(lurker here...)

Good luck, DM!!! Know you will be missed. I think everyone understands how sometimes leaving is terribly sad but still needs to be.

Much love!
