But I am not dreaming!

My dear friend wrote this brave post. I want you to see it, too. If you’ve had similar experiences (or know someone who has), you’ll appreciate this.  Really proud of her for sharing and letting others know they’re not alone.

Today I write the 200th post on Hypervigilant.org…sort of  a milestone.

I wouldn’t be here without YOU. This post is dedicated to you, my amazing friends around the world. 

Taking a page from my opinionated buddy Jason at HarsH ReaLiTy, I’m opening the first Hypervigilant Networking Post. It’s your turn to write!

Introduce yourself to everyone. Put a link to your blog in the comments. Add a quick summary about yourself and/or your blog.

No butt-sniffing, though.

Unless you’re this guy. 

Here, I’ll get you started. Like this:

 

Hi, I’m Casey. I write most about adoption, but sometimes write fiction or about random things I’ve learned. Here’s my blog: hypervigilant.org

Let’s network, people.

Love is the only solution

This guy is amazing. A good reminder…love is the only solution, but it isn’t an immediate fix. Love takes time and only works if you really mean it.

Love is the only solution.
