I’ve done it!

Ok, I’ve finally done it. I’m closing my blog here on wordpress.com and continuing it on my own website:

www.faithfulladoptee.com

I’m still trying to figure stuff out, thank God that my husband is an IT’er —>computer professional.

What you have to do ?

You’ll have to re-subscribe. Sorry.

Email subscribers: I can’t take all your email addresses and sign you up for something new. Not allowed.

RSS subscribers: I can’t reach into your reader and reconfigure it. Only Jesus can preform such miracles. ^^

Fortunately it’s pretty easy to re-subscribe. Head over the the new blog site and check the right-hand side. If you like email, use the ‘Subscribe by email’ section. If RSS is more your style, check out the ‘RSS feeds’ section on the top. It’s pretty easy.

Also please update your links and bookmarks. Thanks to all the bloggers who have linked to my blog. I am updating the blog roll at the new blog so if your blog is linked now it will soon be linked at the new blog. If you do not want you blog linked please let me know.

Although I will no longer be posting here, I look forward to hearing from you at my new location. Thanks for your continued interest and support!

An introduction to Sinterklaas…

Makers Daughter:

Today is Sinterklaas in the low lands. The Netherlands, Belgium and some parts of France. Here is a great explanation for those not familiar with the kids favourite holiday.

Sinterklaas is a traditional Winter holiday figure still celebrated today in the Low Countries, including the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as French Flanders (Lille) and Artois (Arras). The feast celebrates the name day of Saint Nicholas — patron saint of children. Sinterklaas is the basis for the North American figure of Santa Claus.

In the Netherlands, Saint Nicholas’ Eve on 5 December, became the chief occasion for gift-giving during the Christmas season. For Dutch and Belgian children, it is customary to put one shoe in front of the fireplace from the day Sinterklaas arrives in the Netherlands, usually in the third week of November, sing Sinterklaas songs and go to bed. A carrot and/or hay, an apple, etc. may put in the shoe as a treat for Sinterklaas’ horse. The next morning the carrot would be gone and the…

Hello all!

Hello curious readers and thank you for visiting my blog!

I’ve always wanted to share a bit of my life, for therapeutically reasons, for wanting to give some hope to those in similar situations or just for the selfish reason of putting myself out there !

This blog is all about life ! Life as an adoptee, life as a teenage mum, life as a struggling young adult, life far away from home, spiritual life, lonely life and now a somewhat content life. Oh yes and a very exciting , life changing moment : the being found life !

To some people, those who will be doing me the honor of taking some time out of their busy lives to read a bit of mine, well it will maybe seem a bit much, a bit unimaginable, but I’m promising you that all that I will be writing here, will be the truth and I thank you in advance, for taking some interest in what I have to say.

“The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.” ~ G.K. Chesterton
