I haven't posted in quite awhile because something pretty exciting has been going on. I have taken this blog, edited a few things, added others, and it's been rewritten as a book. An excerpt from the book won first place in a non-fiction writing contest, and a literary agent has signed to represent me to try to get it published. Starting next week, it will be going out to publishing houses to see if anyone is interested. I will keep you posted.
To all of you who have been reading and commenting on the blog: Thank you. Your encouragement and interest has fueled the writing of all these entries and the production of the book. If it should be published, you'll eventually see it as "Raising Abel," by Caroline Nash (my pen name); I still want to keep my sons' and my identities secret. I continue to hope that by telling our story, I can help others who may be in the same or similar position.
