Our (first) Journey of TTC

Although our “TTC” journey has yet to lead us to conception, I thought I would share bits and pieces of where we started and how we got to where we are now. We are so grateful to be parents through the miracle of adoption, but took a lot of steps along the way to try [...]

Starting the TTC Journey for Baby #2
