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.


Nothing. What a fucking weekend to have a holiday on. We won't even get an update until tomorrow.

We know that she was going to tell her mom this weekend about the pregnancy and adoption plan. Her family doesn't help with her first child, whom she is parenting, so will they step up now that there are two? It's a question that I really wish had been answered before we were brought into the mix. The thought of going to work tomorrow is making me anxious and slightly ticked off. The thought of potentially having to untell our news? Ugh.

He Waited a Day
