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.

Welcome ICLW'ers

The short version...

I started my blog as a way to keep in touch with my message board friends from way back when I was using ferti.lity fri.end to try to get pregnant.  Since then it's evolved into something more and connecting with the larger ALI community has been awesome.

We are adopting a newborn domestically and our wait has been very long.  At first our agency told us 15 months and now we're up to 20+ months with no match.  Hence the rants of late in my posts.
