My name is Sterling, I'm 22-years-old, and I am the birthmother to the most gorgeous little boy in the world. I started this blog to share my experiences, thoughts, and help myself move forward after placing my sweet little boy. If this is your first time visiting my blog, I invite you to read my story (top of the left column). Feel free to comment with questions or requests. If you follow me, I'll follow you!

Quick post before work!

Two things, first of all my adoption crush (who doesn't even know I exist) and her husband are looking to adopt again! is their link. Also see for more about Lindsey's life. They have two adorable little boys, and very loving relationships with their sons' birthmothers. Everything Lindsey writes is amazing, and someday I hope I can meet her. (Maybe she'll be at the National FSA Conference? I'm pretty sure I'll pee my pants if I see her).

Aaaaaaand - duhn duhnta duhn!!!

I'm going to Florida!!!
Here's what happened - my cumulative course exam was scheduled for August 11, 2010. That is the ONE exam I can neither take early, nor make up. I must be there, no questions asked, unless my head gets lobbed off by machete. In which case, I'll need to consult with student services about re-taking the course in the fall.

Me: Kim, is there any possible way I can take the cumulative exam early? It's for something really, really important.
Kim: We can't let anyone take it early or retake it. It has to be the day of. If it's a doctor's appointment, you can take it in the afternoon instead of morning block.
Me: Actually I'm wanting to be in Florida that whole day... til Sunday.
Kim: Vacation isn't a good excuse, sorry sister.
Me: It's not a vacation, not really. My little boy's adoption is being finalized and I really, really want to be there because they're getting sealed pretty soon after, then blessing him that Sunday.
Kim: You had a baby?
Me: Yeah, in February.
Kim: Wow, you look good! *{I love this reaction!!!}*
Me: Thanks... so no chance, though?
Kim: Well, That would make you absent for a full week.
Me: No, just Wednesday. Thursday and Friday there's no school.
Kim: The 11th? We switched the cumulative exam to the 16th.
Me: Seriously!?
Kim: Yeah, the new schedule is on the board. Angela will be out of town.
Me: *some sort of squealing noise*
Kim: I take it you're going?
Me: Yes! *squeal*
Kim: That's awesome. My sister keeps hoping her son's birthmother will get back in contact with them. Do you have a good relationship with your son's parents?
Me: The best! Your sister adopted?
...... on and on and on, the other instructors started talking about friends they knew, how awesome they thought it was that I was going to be there for finalization, blah blah blah...

I'm going to be there! I get my closure! Thank you, Angela, for being out of town on the 11th. Thank you, DATC, for deciding to close down the school on the 12th and 13th. My life rocks!!!
