Hrmph. Ok, I was talking to my friend Scott tonight (sorry Scott), and he said that some people in the "Midwest" look at me as an "Un-wed Mother". ???? What? Insinuating that I'm not as good as a married woman. :( What??
I'm a Single Mom By Choice. No one who goes through the adoption process, for 3 years or LONGER, is an "Un-wed Mother". We get special status, IMO. And I don't care what others think, mostly. But, it sort of hit a sore spot, I guess.
I realize he didn't mean anything bad by it...but the idea just sticks in my crawl. Sorry. Yes, it is true. I'm un-wed. That is by choice. I mean, no I couldn't just go out and get married this second. But, I have had the chance, and I passed it up (for very good reason). Would I get married? Absolutely... to the right man.
Anyhow... anyone who has the idea that I'm an "Un-wed Mother" can kiss my un-wed-mother-ass. That's how I feel about that.
