My name is Melissa and am a 44 year old divorced mother of 4.  Up until recently that was a very hard statement for me to speak, let alone write about and use as a description for myself.  Needless to say, I’ve come a long way.  I am an amateur writer at best but have found it so therapeutic for me in my journey.  I hope you enjoy following along with me as I write about all kinds of truths in my life.  If you want to check out my beginnings and read about my adoption journey check out https://portieadoptionjourney.blogspot.com.
