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.

Not So Easy After All and Other Stuff

We finally got a response from the I.R.S on our 2010 amended tax return for the rest of our adoption credit.  It's been "referred" to another department.  Welp, I can see where this is going.  Stay tuned for bitchy posts about the idiocy of dealing with these guys.
I've had two sessions with a therapist.  It's going well so far.  She's very results oriented (which gives me homework, boo), but it also should help me move beyond some of the things that hold me back. 
Baby X is not a baby anymore.  Seriously, he hit the toddler room and it is over.  It's kind of bittersweet.  Fun and exhausting too.
Weeks ago I started a post on a second adoption....suffice to say, the process is started and we're hoping to be on the list soon.  And the post is forthcoming soon.  This weekend I hope!
Do you ever dread going to work because of the annoying shit going on?  That's where I am.  Dealing with annoying crap instead of actually getting reports written.  Blah.
