Tonight was wonderful.
I met two people I have wanted to meet for a very long time.
First I met Rebecca Eckler.
I love her. She had a book launch. She invited me. If you don't know me it is hard to understand. I will say that anyone who knew me before I read her first book, knocked up, saw a huge change in me after I read her book.
Her second book, wiped, is amazing too. But her first book changed my life.
I have wanted to meet her forever. And I did. And I cried. (She totally dealt with it which just makes me love her more).
I also met catherine of Her Bad Mother.
In a different way I love her. Surprisingly I cried when I met her as well.
I wish I could explain. If you know me you don't need me to. Both women, in very unique ways, have had a profund effect on my life in completely different ways.
I left tonight feeling challenged and encouraged and, dare I say it, special.
I have spent 3 years trying to prove to everyone that I am worthy of being the mother to the most amazing child in the world.
Tonight I felt worthy of being myself - Laural Dawn Adams - mother, wife, daughter, and, oh yeah, my own person.
I knew something was missing. I just didn't quite know what.
So Rebecca and Catherine - thanks! I realized tonight (in the midst of my tears) that I still exist.
I LOVE you guys!!!!!
