    Some Things About Me:

     I don't even know if I should really be on Cafe Mom because my three children are grown, but one reason that I signed up (quite awhile back now) because besides having my own children (one of whom was adopted from infancy), I've had a lot of experience with, exposure to, and interest in child-related matters and thought I may have something helpful to share on here.

    More important than the above reason I signed up, however, are two others reasons:  The first is that I thought this community may be a good place for sharing insight/information on a very serious and sobering mom-related issue and/or for trying to offer support to mothers who have dealt with, are now dealing with, or could potentially have to deal with that issue - and that issue is perfectly capable, excellent, loving mothers' losing custody of their child(ren) for - truly - no legitimate reason.

    I won't tell the whole story here, but the issue has become a "cause" for me as a result of seeing how it can happen.  So, besides hoping to share any insight/information with others, I'm also hoping to (maybe) be able to support other mothers who may face (or worry about facing) the same kind of thing.
