Our Adoption Story

It's been quite a long time since I have turned to this blog as a way to vent my feelings. I look at the last posts and it takes me right back to our fertility struggles. The feelings are still so real and raw. Only now we have a 4 month old. Yep. We finally... Continue Reading →



It's taken me a few weeks to feel like I can write this post without falling apart. It's been a long few weeks and I am still struggling with it a bit. As many of you know, we decided to do one more round of IVF. It took me a few months to even be... Continue Reading →

In the End of IVF

It's been almost a week since we got results. I've written this post several times and just haven't quite been able to make it feel right.

That Thing I Said I’d Never Do Again

Remember that time I vowed I would never give myself injections to get pregnant ever again? About this same time last year we were exhausted. Tired of the constant doctor visits and medication.
