Farewell to Yoon's Blur

So, I know I just said I was going to take a break. But I have decided that, yes, it is time to go.

No more "breaks." This is it.

In light of all the "breaks" I have been taking recently, I finally realized that I am just not motivated to blog here anymore. Yoon's Blur feels like a pair of shoes that no longer fits quite right. Walking in them feels arduous and cumbersome.

I'll still be blogging occasionally over at Lost Daughters. And you might be able to find me hanging out at Wordpress in a different pair of shoes. But I'm done here.

I will keep Yoon's Blur up, so if you happen to be stumbling upon this blog for the first time, please feel free to dive in and see what you can dig up. But no new content will be added.

I have appreciated all the readers, your commentary and insights, even when we have not agreed.

I am certainly not the same person I was when I first started blogging here. And although this is my final blog post here, for better or for worse, I will never be done in my journey as an adoptee.

Thank you everyone for reading. I wish you and your families all the best.

Thank you, Melissa, for sharing your experiences, opinions, and insights through this blog. Thank you also for taking the time to answer my emails in the past. You have made a significant contribution to the adoption world, and I believe adoption with the focus on family preservation first will benefit as a result. I hope you have found peace in your decision with this blog, and I truly wish you the best in all your future endeavors!

Kelsey said...

I hope we see more of you if not on here on another blog. I loved reading your posts and am so happy I am still getting to know you :) You are truly an inspiration to many adoptees. Thank you for sharing your experiences and ideas on here!! <3

I will miss your insights here, but I am glad you'll still blog over at Lost Daughters. And you're right. Our journey as adoptees is never over. (((Mila))) I am so glad to have you in my (cyber)life.

I will never ever be able to express to you how much you have helped me Mila. You have given me so much information and the ability to try and understand all of the feelings my girls have and will continue to have, I have grown so much. I know that I am a better AP because of you:) Hugs and much love!

Cat said...

I am saddened to know you will not be blogging anymore. I recently found your youtube videos and postings a couple months ago. I too, am a Korean adoptee. And Dillon International contacted me....to tell me that my birth mother is alive, my birth father passed away, I have two younger brothers and I am a twin. Your content has been meaningful to me. And has helped me with my "post reunion" issues. I met them last weekend. And I am not doing so well, processing this whole thing.

Mila said...

@Cat, girl, please, please, please email me (konoyoomo@gmail.com). I may not be blogging here anymore, but I am still here for YOU. Reunion can be so confusing and painful and emotionally overwhelming...seriously, I am here for you. I would love to connect via email...

Abby said...

I will miss your blog very much. You have taught me the importance of considering ALL perspectives in adoption. I am much more discerning in what I read now, and if my family ever walks the road of adoption we are better off because of your honesty and willingness to share your words and your story. May God bless you!

Amy said...

Thanks for all that you have shared.

Amanda said...

I miss you <3

Thank you for your awesome blog.

Emily said...

I just stumbled across your blog today and am sad that you will no longer be writing here. I recently 'found' my birth mother and am actually headed to Korea next week to reunite with her. It is very nerve wracking because I have no idea what to expect. But I have enjoyed reading your entries. Best of luck.

Emily

Mila said...

@ Emily, as I told Cat, plz don't hesitate to email me directly at konoyoomo@gmail.com

It might take a me a while to get back to you, but I will get back to you!
