New to Blogging

I don't really know how I am supposed to start this thing. I guess the proper thing to do is to explain why I have decided to give blogging a try.

I have always enjoyed writing but don't really take the time to sit down and do it for myself very often. Most of my writing is creatively drafted at school for my students. As you can probably imagine, the content of those stories is far different than what I plan to share here.

My life over the last two years has been a series of ups and downs through infertility and adoption processes. I have heard many people say that I should write a book to share my experiences with others. I don't think I am quite "publisher" ready yet but a blog might just be the first step toward that.

As I wait for the birth of our second daughter, on May 24th, I want to look back and remember all of the twists and turns in life that brought me to right where I am today.

In sharing all of this I hope to give you a little sneak peak into our life. Maybe you are a waiting family and I can bring you comfort in knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, maybe you are a family member who just wants to read about our adoption story, maybe you are just being nosy and want to poke around on my blog --- whatever the case, I hope you find what you are looking for!


  1. I tried starting a blog too when we started the adoption process. I would like to get back writing again. Are you using Bethany again for next adoption?

  2. Cathy, We are going through Bethany but we are considered an independent adoption. I was going to do a blog at the beginning but the emotions were still a little too raw. I thought it would be easier to write now that I know the big picture and I can see how God's plan has unfolded.

  3. I tried to respond to your last comment but don't know what happened to it. In case it pops up later...for now...I will just that is cool about the independent adoption. I look forward to reading more. May I daughter #2 biologically related to Kate?

  4. Yes, daughter #2 is Kate's full sister! It's a huge blessing!

  5. Oh, wow...I thought that might be the case when you talked about the emotions. This is very exciting for you. I am so happy for my two...knowing that they will grow up with a full sibling. We had a visit today (2nd) with birthfamily including their full sib sister.
