How Many Posts Does It Take To Kill An Idea?

Groups. Groups. Groups. You have to love them. A couple of thousand faceless strangers wanting to share their experiences, hopes, and dreams of adoption gather keystroke, by keystroke looking for answers, connections, support, and information.

I have been on either end of a more than a couple of misunderstandings and it never feels good. What feels worse is when your heart is in the right place and by simply having an opinion it creates more confusion than clarity. You want to scream over and over, "that's not what I meant at all!" But, it doesn't matter discussions take a life of their own, others chime in and by the time you reply it now looks like you are replying to something else. Here is my new disclaimer.

DISCLAIMER: This are the thoughts of one woman. They are not written in direct response to any one person or statement but are written with gentle reflection and meant to share a positive perspective. They are in no way meant to harm, instigate, or inflame. If for any reason that the statements fall short of those intentions it may simply be that the internet does not adequately transmit feeling and emotions. Smile before you begin and exhale at the end.
Even he disclaimer was written in fun and with humor received a negative response.

Well, as my grammy always says: You can please some of the people most of the time, and you can please most of the people some of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time.

Nor should you try to:)

You should go back and see my disclaimer...of course mine is a bit more sarcastic.
