“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

Many Changes are Coming Soon

Hi Friends of Adoption,

I thought I should warn you that many changes are coming soon to LDSFS and Families Supporting Adoption.  Perhaps you have already noticed many of the blogs related to FSA are disappearing one by one.  The Oregon Chapter has deleted their blog and it is no longer possible to read the National FSA Blog.  When one click's on the formal FSA National Blog link, the following message appears:

This blog is open to invited readers only

It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog. If you think this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation.
This blog will change soon based on the fact that "a decision has been made at the general Church level that individuals and organizations that are linked to the Church...should not host blogs...this is a result of concern over public relations issues related to the Church and it's mission being inaccurately portrayed or perceived through these blogs...local FSA blogs may be most affected by this change in our area."
I am gathering additional information and beginning this process.  I support and value adoption and feel that many people have contributed a lot of time and resources over the years to provide information for this blog and many other well written blogs formarly associated with Families Supporting Adoption.  To me it is tragic to have all of this information lost.  I hope we will be able to find a way to preserve a portion of this information and the connections we have made as participants in FSA.  More information will be coming your way as I learn more.  Please note that I am writing this as an individual and my words are in no way associated with any church or agency but are mine alone unless in quotations.
