No worries at all!! 8:30 bedtimes are my love language, haha!

We've run into a toddler who doesn't like to nap unless he's in the car, so I've been spending 2 hours sitting in the car at a park lately, haha! That's how I sneak in most of my reading time lately.

message 22: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments Ok I can't trust Jeff. he's too perfect.

message 23: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments "There's something energizing about getting what you want, even if that something is shame."

Ooooooooo


message 24: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments Brave when was your little man born? I got mine on December 10th 2015. Your baby only 6-ish months older than mine?


message 25: by Brave (new)

Brave (bravereads) | 74 comments YES, I kept referring to him in my head as "Suspiciously Perfect Jeff," hahaha!

Such a good quote.

My two youngest boys were born April 30, 2015, and I have one younger that was a 28-weeker preemie born July 12 2018! I also am now mom to their two big brothers (born 2010 and 2005). We adopted the four of them from foster care in September of last year! We've had them all since just before the baby was born.

Hi Brave, can I message you about foster care and adoption? I'm amazed that you're so young and have adopted 4! My husband and I are in the baby steps of looking into foster care and/or adoption.


message 27: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments Brave that's wonderful! <3


message 28: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments Oh I HATE Jeff after how he treated Sam when she showed up

Yes! PLEASE message me! I'm an open book. I never ever shut up about it, honestly, hahaha. :) Please message me, I'm happy to answer all your questions.

We weren't initially super interested in adoption necessarily at first. We really wanted to meet the foster care need in our area (which is in Appalachia, hit really hard by the opioid crisis), but our boys are perfect and wonderful humans, fit into our families perfectly (and we fit into theirs!), and with their spread of ages, we absolutely did not want them separated. I'd choose it over and over again!

Ok thank you! And that just warms my heart!! Your family are heroes!


message 32: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments Page 96 - So, I'm perversely loving this dynamic between Sam and Quincy. I love Sam. The Xanax binge was a really strange but powerful scene. It just made me imagine living in a world of that nasty, negative, brain space.


message 33: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments page 107 - the flashback after Joe is invited in:

Janelle is an idiot. Period.


message 34: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments page 119 - Coop is annoying paternalistic.


message 35: by Brave (new)

Brave (bravereads) | 74 comments I was friends with someone SO MUCH LIKE Janelle in high school and reading that scene legitimately made my heart race. Like SHE IS SO DUMB!! But also...I found that scene almost TOO believable lol.


message 36: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments page 142 - they just found out Lisa was murdered. But the stuff about Quincy wanting Coop to notice the bruise just 100% solidified my impression that her relationship with Coop is NOT healthy.

Oh, Janelle's level or stupid is definitely believable. unfortunately lol


message 37: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay | 59 comments chapter 19 (view spoiler)
