How I Taught My Son About His Adoption

When I was young, and dreaming of my someday family – adoption was not in the forefront of my mind. I always admired the concept, but to me it was just so … exotic. It didn’t seem like something you could actually do. And of course, it never crossed my mind that I might not […] Read the whole post!

When Family Building Feels Impossible…

I know my blog has taken a backseat lately, and I’m sorry for that. It’s always on my mind and whatever I’m doing, you can bet I’m wishing that I was writing to all of you instead. :) While I’m working full time right now, though… I’m just gonna have to do the best I […] Read the whole post!
