Adoption – How Did We Do It?

After adopting our daughter, A, we had a few people reach out asking us how we were matched so quickly, what we did, etc. Then, since adopting our son, D, and daughter T, we’ve had multiple people asking those same questions again, so it seemed like a blog post was in order. Adoption is, obviously, […]


A’s First Birthday!

A is one! Oh my heck, I feel like my mom as I keep wondering where the time went, and wanting it to slow down. This past year has flown by, and K and I are both still in shock over having a one year old. This last year as parents has been pretty much […]

What is Open Adoption - Our Kind of Wonderful

What is Open Adoption?

Adoption is hard, if I’m being honest. You put yourself out there, hoping that someone is going to like you, and want you to be the parent of their child. Your life is inspected by a social worker and you have to prove that you’re “fit” to be parents, when if you’d had biological children […]

I Get To Be the One

I'm a Mom - Our Kind of Wonderful

I’m a Mom

Motherhood is unlike anything I imagined, harder, better, more demanding, more rewarding, it’s just more. I still want to pinch myself, to make sure this is real life, that A is our daughter. And, being a mom has changed me, in ways I wasn’t sure I could ever change. I feel things, deeper. I cry […]

3 Months

How has it been 3 months already?! A is the cutest little lady ever, and we can’t get enough of her. She drools all over, loves to chew on her hands, my hair, pretty much anything she can grab.  She hates tummy time with a passion, but will endure it with enough singing light up toys […]
