What a weekend

Well the weekend just went by to darn fast. The wife was off work and we spent some time together which was nice. We signed up for Netflix finally and pretty much watched movies on the X-box.

I was going to post an update on my tribute post from friday last night...but some unfortunate events occured that left me pretty bed ridden last night. The dog (Max) decided that it would be funny to try and take off when I wasn't paying attention. Well needless to say if felt like he ripped my elbow out of socket and I was pretty swollen and hurt the rest of the night... Therefore no post last night.

But I'm here briefly now. It's about noon here in Ohio and the wife is sleeping away and Max is right beside her... I swear that dog never lets me sleep in my own bed when the wife is home! LOL!!!

I bet you are all wondering about my tribute and my son huh??? Well I guess you will all just have to wonder :) I know I know how mean of me! lol!!! But man the response I got from that post! I totally forgot that I never let anyone know that I have a child! lol Let alone that he doesn't live with me. No I am not some worthless mom that lost her child. I knew at my age (I was 18) that I could NOT raise a child alone, with no support and no family. So I did the next best thing for him and I gave him up for adoption. Now it isn't the type of adoption that he just goes and lives with some family and I never see him again... No it's not like that at all. We talk, we visit, he knows me. It's a very open adoption. And that is all I have to say about that :)

Well my fellow bloggers, hopefully tonight I will have some more wittyness for you! I'm just drained right now and running on two days of no sleep and lots of pain.
Signing off,
Sabrae Carter

That is so sad. You obviously love your son very much. It's too bad you couldn't make it work.
But at least you get to see him!

I hope your arm gets to feeling better. I swear these animals are always out to kill us.


What a great thing you did for your son. I know how difficult that must have been. I am glad you do get to see him and talk to him

Hope your arm is feelin better...wow what a courageous woman putting your child first and how cool that it's an open adoption thats a win-win for all...I admire that!

I hope your elbow gets well soon! Those dogs sure do cause chaos.

Open adoption is a wonderful solution. It's so good for you and your son to be able to have a relationship with each other. That's a story with a happy ending.

Not there's anything wrong the "type of adoption that he just goes and lives with some family and I never see him again."

I was adopted I never wanted to see my birth mother again. My girls are adopted, and I hope they don't view us as "just some family".

As an adopted child myself, I have to thank you for your selflessness. I was a closed adoption, but it was the best thing for everyone involved at the time. I am very blessed (I met my birth mom 2 years ago and we have a very nice relationship/friendship).

I am glad you are feeling better! I think it is wonderful, shows the love you had for your son and it is so great that he knows you and you are able to see him. That is awesome!

I to hope you feel better soon. The choice with your son had to be a difficult one and I can certainly respect the decision you made. I'm glad you found a family that was ready for children and also were secure enough to let you stay in his life.

I hope you feel better very soon!

Ouchy! I hope your elbow is feeling tip top very soon!

You are an awesome gal! Thanks for sharing that part of yourself with us!

I think that says a lot about your character in that you put your kid first and acknowledged your capabilities. I'm thrilled that you are in touch. Thrilled. I think what you did was very brave and noble

ouch about the arm! glad you were able to make a decision for you and your son works for both of you :-) how nice that you were able to do an open adoption!

Geez, I hate that when everyone automatically thinks that you are a bad mom just because you don't have custody of your child. I think you had a tough choice to make and did what was best for your child. In my book that makes you a great mom!! Plus you make sure that you would always get to be a part of his life. Smart move. When people found out that I lost custody of my 2 older children they automatically assumend I was a bad mother. I lost custody of them because I was in an accident and couldnot take care of them. By the time I was better courts decided that they should not be moved out of their father's house. But they are adults now and I am best friends with both of them
