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.

Posts for Thought

Why Did We Choose Adoption?
Written in the summer of 2009, right after we were approved for our homestudy.

What Is Normal?
This post was written in 2009, fairly early in our waiting period.  It's mostly about my infertility journey.

What If
Written for Project IF and National Infertility Week in 2010.

How Infertility Has Effed Up My Head
This post I wrote recently and is about why I no longer hope/want to get pregnant.

Being A Multi-Racial Family
This post I wrote as I started reading transracial parenting books and scared the bejeebus out of myself.  The books have since been shelved until a later date as we navigate the more mundane aspects of parenting such as eating (or not) and sleeping (or not).
