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.

Yay Responses!

I love getting responses through my blog.  I meant to process and write my own post like a week ago but life got in the way.  Coming soon when I have time to give it my undivided attention.  I was feeling like my family (both families really) were giving less than stellar support on our second adoption (brought up by feelings of how the first went) when I wrote the questions and chose to go with questions instead of a rant.

Since then several things have occurred:
1.  I took my first trip of the year and it totally screwed me up as every "first trip" usually does because I'm not in the groove.

2.  I realized I can't attend a baby shower coming up soon for a close friend of mine because this second adoption wait sucks about as much as the first one.  Except for the distraction of Baby X of course.  It helps, but I find myself emotionally in the same place as last time.

3.  Unless the website/FB page etc etc work, we're looking at a solid 3 year wait. Holy hell.

4.  Perhaps I'm not entirely over infertility, being unexplained and all.  This has come up more than once in therapy and the suggestion that perhaps we should consider getting some answers and maybe even TTC.  Yeah, that deserves it's own post for sure.

5.  Tantrums.  'Nuff said.
