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.

Persistence pays off!  Of course I will be way more excited when the money is safely in our bank account. Oh, and we received 3 pieces of mail telling us that we were getting the credit money. Ha, bureaucrats!!

p.s.  It took about a year and 3 months, and a snarky letter pointing out that we followed their own damn rules.
