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.

He Waited a Day

This morning while S was on the way to work and I was herding Baby X out the door, the phone call came. D was in the hospital and birth was imminent. Get ready!

After dropping X off at daycare, I met S at home and exchanged several phone calls with our caseworker. We decided to meet at 9:30am at the hospital so that she could check on D and talk with the hospital social worker before bringing us into the mix. 

At 9:45 am we met bouncing baby boy  for the first time.  D was worried about going into labor yesterday because she didn't want to mess up X’s birthday. So, he waited a day and X got a day at the zoo, plus some birthday cake!

It Was Fleeting....
