What If?

I have a very vivid memory of talking and crying with a friend the first month we started trying to conceive. I had just started my period and was so disappointed it didn’t work the first time. I know, I know. It was very naive of me to think it would work on our first […]

A Bad Dream

Now that it’s been a few months since our loss, I don’t think about it constantly like I did right after it happened. I might not even think about it every day, depending on the kind of day I’m having. It sort of feels like a bad dream. Like it didn’t really happen. Something will […]

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 […]
