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.


I saw my brother (brother1) and his family this weekend.

We had a needed deep and uncomfortable conversation about our parents. 

We may be searching for our bio father/father's family in the near future. 

This is the first time in my life that I have identified as an adoptee. 

My first step is to try to get my original birth certificate. 

My second is to ask my mother for the information I know she has, but has not shared with us. 

I'm scared.
