Better safe than sorry

For the last few days I have had this feeling that wont go away no matter how much I try to talk myself out if it it's still there so I am going with my gut. No on has told me to do this but I think it is so important to be more vague on here. Legally in Eastern Europe we are not supposed to use pictures of Baby A, his name or talk about his medical condition. I think most of the time they let it slide either because they don't really care or they never find out but the baby we are wanting to adopt is very well known and I want to do whatever I can to make sure no one can look at our blog and say you can't adopt him because you did x, y or z.

You can still see his updates and pictures on FB and I will still be updating the blog with information about where we are in the process but I will just be a lot more careful about what extra information I share.

I am kinda bummed out about it because I LOVE his name on here and his pictures and videos and in fact a SUPER sweet blog reader has been working very hard at giving this blog a make over but I think this is for the best. It will be so worth it when we are flying home with our boy and there were no complications due to me posting something I shouldn't have. I still have all the posts and I will make them public again once his adoption is finalized. I hope you can all bear with us during the next few months of picture-less and name-less posts. I feel like a Mother hen who wants to protect her young. I really think this is the best thing for the adoption so like I said in the title I would rather be safe then sorry.

I hope you all understand. When you leave comments please use the name Baby A.


  1. Of course! Go with your gut. **HUGS** I know you must be warring between wanting to share your joy with his sweet face and name, and wanting to carefully guard what is posted so there is no reason for anyone involved to slow or stop the process. I will keep praying that you have your precious baby in your arms for keeps soon! God bless you!

  2. It is better to be safe! The day we picked up Ava at the orphange was the first day I posted her picture on my blog. It was so much fun!People will post pictures of the back of their head (no face) or pics of neck down for a teaser:)
    Praying for your sweet boy!

  3. Don't forget about the button on the sidebar above Jonah's button! =]

  4. Yes, most definitely better be safe, we totally understand. And we know his name and speak of him in prayers. :)

  5. I thin you are right on for trusting your gut, and I think your gut is right on as well! I have burned myself inadvertently on more than one occasion for sharing too much on my blog. We're still right there with you guys!

  6. Of course! Still, thank you so much for sharing. It teaches us much, your experience and your attitude.

  7. You've got my support! Go with your instincts.
