#431 -- Milestones in blogging

One Small Sacrifice photo
A blog about American Indian Adoptees was my vision and the history of the Indian Adoption Projects was finally unburied...   
Four years ago in November, this blog was born and the history of the Indian Adoption Projects was uncovered in my memoir ONE SMALL SACRIFICE.

On this anniversary, I wanted to share some milestones with you! This is my 431th post. It’s hard to wrap my head how this one little blog has had over 64,000 visits and over 2 million LIKES on Facebook.
The most important thing for me to say is: Thank you. Megwetch! WaDo!

Thank you for coming back week after week, reading, commenting, and sharing this blog. That means the world to me.

Thank you for spending your hard-earned cash on my memoir One Small Sacrifice and my new anthology TWO WORLDS.  You told your friends, talked about it on Facebook, and visited my Book Pages. You showed me my vision 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'd highlight some of the biggest milestones of the past four years.

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Our Fault? (no)
