Kim gets a heartbreaking text from her brother in law.
We all do what we do best, we hug. We console. We discuss. We support. (And later buy itty bitty bundt cakes.)
Kim then shows us a picture of her brother in law. It’s of him, 8 days old. The day he came home to his adoptive family in Brazil. He had never seen the photo before. But he has now.
Then I get an email from a photography client who has to push her booking back because a birth mom has chosen to place her child with them. Naturally, she wants to wait until her family is all together before taking the photo.
We all got goosebumps. (Lindsey and Kim are both powerhouses in the adoption blogging community…)
Say what you want about making money with blogging, but it’s blogging that brought us together today and this is the kind of stuff that blogging is really about. The meaningful stuff. The stuff that can’t be bought or reviewed or even put into words.
If you get into this for money and aren’t willing to put in real work and a whole lot of the real you? You’re doing it wrong. I’m sorry, but you are.
Do it because you love it…and when you’re doing something you love, the opportunities (and sometimes money) follow.
