I did it, I finally deleted my carepage.

When we started our IF adventure/journey/process I decided to update friends and family members by creating a Carepage. I was introduced to Carepage from a really good friend Margaret who would send updates on her mother's courageous battle for her life against Leukemia. The carepage system is great and in a way it's like blogging for dummies. I was happy with it but when BFF Jules decided to start her blog I discovered that I really liked this outlet of communication.

There are things I liked about the Carepage, with very few dislikes. I suppose it represented our IF process from beginning to the point we decided to do the Fost/adopt. So, in January, when we started the Fost/adopt process I announced I was going to delete my carepage. Every time I went to delete the thing I just couldn't do it. It was a piece of me, I created it and devoted so much time and effort and when it came right down to it - I.could.not. do. it.

TODAY I DID IT!!!! I deleted it and it's done. I think it is closure that has been a long time coming. It was very cathartic and now I feel a sense of peace.

I have no clue what a Carepage is, but I'm glad that you feel like you're able to move forward and find some closure.
