Ladies,

I swear I didn't read the description of this group, but that doesn't excuse my insensitivity to your feelings.  Please know that I am so very, VERY sorry to you all.  I really meant no harm, but reading the replies, I did harm.  I hope you all can forgive me for my error.  I never wanted to hurt any one.  Please know I am very sorry, and though words can never express how stupid and lame I feel, I hope you ladies can all forgive me at some point.

Please know that I only come to first  moms for advice on what not to do as an adoptive mom.  Well, this one was glaring, and I know I've said this often, but I really am so VERY SORRY!

Again, I'm very sorry for intruding and treating you all with such disrespect, when I DO have the utmost in respect for you all.  I know it didn't come through, and I'm sorry.

Sincerely, and with much anger at myself over the pain I've caused you all,

Lisa Blum

I forgive you Lisa, because I honestly feel that you made a mistake. I have adopted out (open adoption) and I have family members who are trying to adopt. I know just how hard it is to put yourself out there and find someone willing to give their child to you. I am sure you have just as much pain as some of us feel. (Ladies don't bash me on this b/c I feel it is true)

Some of us have recently adopted out and some of us have adopted out long ago. Please make sure you read the full description of the group next time, and good luck on your search for your next child Lisa.good luck

Thank you so much for your forgiveness.  Please, I hope it would be okay to stay and to learn from you all.  You are all such magnificent ladies, and it hurts me so much to know I hurt you all.

We all make mistakes in life,I  certainly have. As with any mistake made  it is the attitude once a mistake has been made and realized .Take care.

Dear Lisa,  I did not see your original posting nor the responses to it, but having seen other solicitation posts,  I appeciate your apology.
