Yikes!

The two primary reasons I keep this blog of our family is, first, to maintain a record of our lives and second, to provide a window through which our extended families (and birth-families) and friends can experience our girls' growth along with us.  This last week, however, I've been noticing some creepy websites which have been listed as traffic sources for our blog (?!).  I am feeling terribly ill about the prospect of it, but I don't feel particularly inclined to investigate.  So, in order to be safe rather than sorry, and with some strong encouragement from David, I am going to make our blog "private;" or at least less available to unsavory viewers.  I really hope that anyone with the slightest interest in our girls or any acquaintance with our family will have access to it-- If you send me your email address at some point via Facebook, plain-Jane email, or by commenting on this post, I will clear you promptly!  You will then just have to "log in" with your email address every once in a while in order to look at the blog.

Sorry to our three faithful frequenters for the inconvenience.

I have been following your blog for quite some time now... I was given the link by Mia's birth mothers uncle. I am actually a cousin of the birth mom. I understand if you don't want me following anymore, and if you are okay with it, my e-mail is faithsdaisy421@gmail.com

To faithsdaisy421 and anyone else- I want anyone to have access to our blog who has an interest in our family or our girls, especially those associated with our birth families! The only people I don't want to have access are people who could be using pictures of our girls for bad and dangerous purposes. I am so pleased that Mia's extended birthfamily has been able to see her grow!!!
