Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

I Really Shouldn't be Whining....

So don't, right?

Sure, that's the easy answer but I'm frustrated these days.  It's the passing of another year and what feels like no movement forward to becoming a family of 3 (4 if you count the dog).  I realize there is movement and literally. you. never. know!  Sure whatever but I'm a grade-A cynic at heart and now S is starting to join me at the bottom of the pit of despair.  heh.   We've been on the list for 17 fucking months.

Our agency is now reporting 15 to 24 months waiting before placement.  So really, I shouldn't be whining should I?

That won't stop me...

p.s.  I promise not to come back until I have something nice to say. 

Flabbergasted. And Not in a Good Way

It's Monday
