Three years ago, a blog about American Indian Adoptees was a dream and the history of the Indian Adoption Projects was buried. Now it’s out there.Three years ago, this blog was born. I set it up in 2009 but I didn’t blog much that year since I was just getting my feet wet - it seemed daunting at first. It was the technical parts of blogging that were new to me. But I had plenty to say and lots of research, news and history to share.
This is my 323rd post. It’s hard to wrap my head around that and how this one little blog has had over 43,000 visits.The most important thing for me to say is this: Thank you. I don’t think I say it enough. That you all come back here week after week, reading, commenting, and sharing this blog means the world to me. That you’ve spent your hard-earned money on my memoir One Small Sacrifice, told your friends about it, talked about it on Facebook, visited my Book Page, you’ve taught me my vision for this history to be told - it was not wrong.
It’s not every day I get to say this - thank you.To recap the life of this blog, I thought I would highlight some of the biggest milestones of the past three years.
