Switching Things Up

I'm going to be switching blogs up a bit. First of all, Maya will be adopted soon so I'm going to combine her private blog (which I haven't been great at updating anyway) into one blog about both kids, adoption, and life in general. I'd like to write more specifically about Mateo's special needs but I want to keep pictures and names out of it to protect his privacy, especially as he gets older and I get more detailed. So I'm going to create a separate blog specifically about that. I won't make it private because I want to be a support for other parents going through the same things. But I'm not going to connect the two blogs so that new readers won't have access to his picture, name, and personal information. My current readers will know who he is and I invite you to read both blogs, but please do not write his real name in any comments. I'm going to move all my posts about his special needs over to the new blog and keep Confessions of a Real Mom light and fun, with plenty of photos of cute kids! Does this make sense?

As soon as I have the new blog set up, I will leave the site information in a comment on your personal blog. If you want me to do so, leave a comment on this post and be sure it connects to your blog or leave your email address. Thanks.

I recently found your blog. I have a six year old daughter diagnosed with bipolar, adhd, anxiety, as well as type 1 diabetes. I would love to continue reading about your journey.

I'd like to read both if you don't mind.

Sounds good. When you get the new one up please let me know via email (more private). I think you have my email or it's on my site as well. I'd change your username too so your old comments won't be connected to your new situation and you can comment on blogs more freely (just a suggestion for privacy).

I'd love to keep up with both! you can find me at www.nobabynoblog.blogspot.com

I'm hoping to work at a therapeutic preschool next year, and I work at a special needs summer camp so I've been intrigued to keep up on your stuff with Mateo

I think it's a smart decision to do things that way. I'd love to follow along, please let me know when you've got the blog up and running.
