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.

X's World

X: "Mom, are you taking care of him (Baby Z)?"
Me: "Yes"
X: "Ok, make sure you burp him one more time!"

X at school, as reported by his teacher: "My daddy and the crying baby are going to pick me up today"

X: "I slept in my bed all night long!" (after waking up in Mommy and Daddy's bed, which he migrates to at about 11:30pm-12:30am every night)

Me: "You can earn back your legos by going to sleep in your bed without a fuss."
X: "Those are Daddy's legos, they aren't my legos"

Everyone we meet: "Do you have a new little brother?"
X: "He cries"

X: "I'm going to eat all my dinner and then I can have a treat!"
(doesn't finish dinner, pesky vegetables)
X: "Now I can have a treat!"
Me: "You need to eat all your broccoli/carrots/blah blah blah first"
X: "Well, I don't like those, they're yucky. Can I have a snack?"  (snacks and treats are different. One is sweet, one isn't....)

X: "Daddy we need to go pick up my artwork!"
S: "What is it?"
X: "It's a scribble!" (black dot on a red piece of paper)
