First, I want to acknowledge that this, the blog of an adoptive parent, is neither a neutral nor neccesarily safe gathering place.
Second, my inclination in everything, from my work to my personal life, is to do things myself. I am slow to ask for partnership, terrible at delegating, and worse at networking. Simply put, my mind thinks vertically and doesn't always immediately recognize the importance of the horizontal.
Those two things have been on my mind today and I wanted to say them here.
