Have you seen "Julie and Julia"?
If not, go watch it now!
Last night I had the pleasure to view it for the first time.
Just like Julie, sometimes I feel like my life is in the slump.
So, at 1:30AM I decided I was going jump full force into blogging.
My blog has been around for about 2 years, but I have never fully embraced it.
I must give myself a little credit, lately I have been doing much better in sharing my little piece of the world with everyone out there in reader-land.
But you see- I tend to let life get the best of me.
There is so much baggage in my life that I tend to smile and pack it away,
this results in me feeling overwhelmed and like a failure,
which turns into more baggage...blah, blah, blah.
I stop doing the things I enjoy and super focus on things I cannot fix.
I know I cannot change this over night,
but I realize I have an outlet to dump some of that baggage and a place to share my joys.
Yes, even when that crap builds I still see the joy that is in my life.
So why am I telling you all this?
Well it just happens that there is a new reality series in the works that is based around blogging moms and I am throwing my hat in the ring.
You can read more about the project here: Project Mom.

So this is me...

I’m Lore and for me blogging has always been a way to share our lives with family, friends and those who may by chance stumble upon my craziness.
What is my story? What journey am I on?

I have two wonderful little boys that I had the pleasure to give birth to.
The oldest of which has a chromosomal abnormality and has been diagnosed on the autism spectrum.
My once quite little boy now has the super power of turning into a raving lunatic in 2.5 seconds flat. At times I am brought to tears.
I am learning what is best for him and how to adapt to his moods and demands.
Talk about a journey- Sometimes it feels like one step forward only to be knocked ten steps back.
My little one- well, he keeps me on my toes, also!

I also have another two amazing kids that God placed in my life.
I may not have carried them in my womb but I have definitely carried them in my heart. Currently we are a foster family but, come November 2011 we will be a forever family.
Their story is truly heart stopping and some day with their permission I hope to share the lengths they’ve traveled to become who they are.

I hope my blog can be a catalyst to bring myself and other moms together.
Together to smile, laugh, cry, complain and maybe slowly unpack that baggage that is holding us all back.
