With well over 10,000 post on various forums, he help so many

It has been an awesome experience participating on this forum. I will be around for many more years to come (hopefully). I doubt these days I can provide (or compete) with the information that others can provide.

Over the years there have been some truly awesome people that participated here. I was never (may never be) in their class but did my best to act like I was. Much of this was to be sure they gave me (and others) the information we needed without any BS, while striving to be like them.

I have a tendency to BS, sound mean, or just get on people's nerve's but wish everyone the best in their endeavors.

There are numerous unsong heroe's for this site:

Terry Woods, who has provided much and I have attempted to preserve on my site.
Allen Nelson, did not preserve enough.
Peter Nachtwey, a genius, but like most have to deal with his idiosyncracies.
Steve Bailey, a godsend.

There are too many to list. Once in a while thank them

To all, Thank You.

I will answer this from another viewpoint, one that may be your husbands.

My wife had 3 kids when we married, we have 2 together, yep 5 total. We were in touch with the show we were on, even lived just a few miles from the owner. We got married in 92, left  the show in 95 and it did not close officially till 04 when the owner died.

In all that time we have not seen nor heard from the their father, personally may be the best that could happen for his biological children. The oldest is the only one that knew him, around 4 when last saw, but think he may want to see him again. The second he would tell the oldest he was not his brother. The youngest of the 3 became mine months before she and I ever got together.

The Adoption Creed:

Not flesh of my flesh
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously
My own.
Never forget
For a single minute:
You didn't grow under my heart,
But in it.
