A Brand New Blog
My Journey To Motherhood-
I always knew that I wanted to be a mom. I always pictured it- A house full of love and the smell of a well used kitchen. A birthday cake in the oven and my children and I in aprons. Laughter, smiles, messes, sweet memories and fun. These are all images I had in my mind when I hoped for the day I'd become a mom. While my journey wasn't what I expected, I now have those fun kids who love to help me in the kitchen and I enjoy nothing more than to bake them birthday cakes! Sometimes the dream in our head doesn't match with reality. Sometimes it's the fact that the dream is in our hearts that leads us to adoption and to our forever family.
This blog has been an idea in my head for the better part of 5 years. 5 years ago we adopted our first child. I am blessed to be the mom of two amazing miracles through adoption. My journey to motherhood has been joyful, lovely as well as painful and lonely at times. My hope is that with this blog I can express myself, my passion for adoption and also be a resource for others who want to learn about adoption or share their own stories. I will post adoption stories, treasuries of adoption related gift items and fundraisers. I will have guest posts and just the "stuff" that comes up everyday in my life with my family and friends.
