Hi, I’m Geochick.

Welcome to my blog. What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy and spiritual awakening. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

What 2014 is Going to Bring

Maybe it's because I'm looking for others who had crappy years, but I feel in good company now that I've read others feel that 2013 sucked.  Maybe because I read that 2013 was going to be difficult, I made it so.  Eh, that doesn't change that we had a failed match, which ultimately colored the last 6 months of the year, and that we are dealing with the terrible twos.

The only way to go from here is up.  I'm hopeful that we have a successful match sooner than later.  I know that in a few short months I will suddenly be one of the most senior engineers in my group thanks to retirements (eek!).  That's a scary prospect, but it's also what I want.  2014 will bring more toddlerhood issues that S and I will have to work through together.  Hold on until age 5 is becoming my mantra.
