Going Private...

It has been brought to my attention recently that there are people who are reading my blog for reasons other than to keep up with the happenings of me, Allen, and Brynn--
which is really what BabyBerry is all about…
I will confess that I have had a stat tracker connected to the blog for it's duration, so I am familiar with everyone that checks the blog, as well as how often they choose to visit... I have decided to add a visible stat tracker to the blog, and I truly hope that won't intimidate anyone who is visiting for the right reasons!!
It truly makes me happy to be able to share my life with ALL of you via this blog-- even if I don't know you personally-- but especially those of you who I'm not able to see or talk to on a regular basis. I know that if I didn't have YOU as an audience, I wouldn't be able to blog! :)

Unfortunately, operating as a public blog has become a problematic issue for personal reasons, and my hand has been forced to consider making the blog private
for some amount of time.

With that being said... If you would still like to follow BabyBerry in the event that it becomes private, I would appreciate if you could leave your email address in the comments section, or you can email it to me at This will allow you access to the blog if and when I am forced to make it private.

I have never used this blog to write about the bad things in my life-- I only share the good things that have happened to myself and my family, which is what I intend to keep doing. I am very proud of my entire family for the way that we have handled ourselves through all of our crises, and I would never want people to believe that we are lacking sophistication and maturity by judging what I choose to put on my personal blog.
I know we, as a family, will continue to set a great example for ALL of the children in our family. We strive to be God-fearing people who understand that He forgives everyone, no matter what their sins may be, and we know that there are people out there that need our prayers more than our judgement.

I want to thank everyone for making this such a wonderful experience thus far! I become a little emotional when I think that BabyBerry will have to become private because of these circumstances, but hopefully it won't come to that in the end.

**UPDATE: I just want to say THANK YOU for all of the wonderful emails that I've received from many of you, even people that I didn't expect to hear from! It makes me happy to hear from all of you and to be able to explain further!! Please don't be afraid to email me!

Em, I love to follow your blog. Sorry to hear you might have to go private. I had to do the same thing a couple of years ago cause I had a weirdo following my blog. Please invite me if you do have to go private.

Girl you know I need to keep in the loop! :) LOVE YOU!

Thanks, ladies!! And Sandy, I wish it were some weirdo... It's more to do with a "boil the bunny"-type situation of a family member, unfortunately. :( Regardless, it's kind of disheartening to have no other way to block them out.
