I'm sad that The Chronicles of Munchkin Land and Paragraphein have gone dark. (They are personal blogs by two women who placed daughters in open adoptions.) I'm hoping it's just temporary and my sadness is an overreaction.
I don't know where else to say this, so I'll say it here. I want to thank Jenna and Nicole for their years of writing. They both wrote publicly about adoption in a unflinchingly honest way that made me be more honest with myself. My relationships with my kids' first parents are stronger because of them.
I don't know the stories behind the closings, but if it's because the meanness of the internet started to seep into their real lives, that bites. I hate it when the meanies win.
ETA (6/20): It's chapter two of The Chronicles! Yay!
