Our journey to grow our family.


We’ll do our best to keep you posted here.


We realize this is a new area for many of you. You may have questions and don’t know how to ask. We hope to share what we learn about adoption through our blog posts, but here are a few quick answers.

How Can I Help?

Many of you have kindly offered your support. We are grateful! You can learn more here.

Welcome! This blog is about the trickiest part of our journey so far – waiting. During this time, I’m gathering my thoughts as a resource for others, a relief for myself, and a record for our future child.

Posts will be published on Tuesdays with alternating topics each week. One week will be more personal, and given the category “journal”. The subsequent week will be more educational, and given the category “information”. You can select either of those categories at the top of each page to help choose what you want to read. Whenever a significant event takes place, I’ll add a post and label it “timeline.”

Thank you for walking alongside us during this time.

With love,


You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.
