I was very interested to read Rebecca's column on the Post's blog. Even those of us who are mothers by adoption have endured some of what she described about post-partum depression (including myself). It was heartening to read about how another mother dealt with and survived this difficult condition.
Rebecca, Kudos on such a wonderful blog post. As someone who suffered from PPD with both my children, I can vouch for the importance of honest stories like yours in making other mothers feel like they are not alone.
thanks mamas!
