Some of you may have noticed the new button on my sidebar. You see there, the one that says Top Blog Mag? I put that up a couple of weeks ago when I stumbled on their site from I don't even know where.
When I first found it, the site was just an idea, they hadn't even put out their first "issue," but since I'm fascinated with the different kinds of things that people are trying to do with the blogging platform, I picked up the button even though I hadn't anything to contribute at that point.
Now in their third issue, they posted a theme that matched something that I had been pushing around in the back of my head. Inspired, I got the story down on paper, edited it for length, and got it to them for Issue three.
Et Voila! I present a detour in our adoption story, the text behind the photo on my sidebar, and the realization of a lifelong goal, if only for a moment.
