Just after Sam and I became Myspace friends I got a message and friend request from Sam’s friend “Lee”. She told me she was Sam’s friend and wanted to stay in contact with Jay (Emma). Okay, whatever. After I accepted her friendship she sent me pictures of her and Emma and asked if she could visit her sometime. I thought about it and decided, no, but didn’t respond. I suck at telling people no! I never heard from “Lee” again.
Just an hour ago Brad was in the shower and there was a knock at our door. I open the door and see 2 girls that look between 16 and 18, one of the girls, “Hi I’m Lee. Sam’s friend.” Uhhhh, WHAT? “I wanted to come by and introduce myself to you and to see if I could come by tomorrow and see Jay?” Me, still dumbfounded by this, “HOW do you know where I LIVE?” Lee, “Sam told me. She’s in jail.” Lee sensing my hesitation and anger that Sam told people where I live, “Don’t worry, I’m not in contact with any of Sam’s family.” Yeah, Sam’s family is the least of my worries! In fact I’m meeting Kay, Sam’s mom for the first time in a few days! (FYI, I’m totally nervous about that!)
Brad and I are both annoyed that Sam has told people where we live!!!
Ahhh, I did NOT see anything like this ever happening. I have looked into getting a PO Box, but it would cost $ to have one just for Sam. I've also thought about just lying and telling Sam we have moved so stuff like this never happens again! I could of lied and told "Lee" she had the wrong apartment, but we are MySpace friends so she's seen my profile picture.
Will I ever do an open adoption through foster care again? YES
Will I have it as open as Sam and I’s? Never! I think I will stick to “social network” friends with pics and stuff, but nothing like Sam got!
