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.

Update on Waiting and Worrying

I called for an update this afternoon.  Plan is still in place, and J is miserable physically.  There wasn't much change at her doctor's appointment today.

It eases the worrying, which I fully understand is goddamn selfish of me to say.  Yay, she's moving ahead with not raising her child?  I gagged writing that.  Except, that's my position, right?  It's a rather untenable position once you start exploring all sides of adoption and learning what it means for all members of the triad.  I am the privileged one.  I am the so-called savior.  *GAG*

Anyway, still freaking the f-ck out over here, just with less dread I guess.
