Seven years, seven months and counting

Never ever did I think that becoming a mom would be so difficult. After being married for 5 years, despite the fact that I was nearing “30,” I didn’t think anything about infertility issues or, God forbid, the inability to conceive. Fast-forward seven plus years later, and I’m still not a mom. Well, not unless you count “the dog.” As great as he is, he’s still not a kid.

My desire to create this blog is not a self-serving one. My husband and I are committed to waiting it out until our adoption finally happens. Rather, I am looking to share my experiences with other moms (and dads)-in-waiting whose experiences are similar to mine. The more people I have met and shared my experiences over time, the more I find that there are others who would be wonderful parents, and for some unfortunate reason, they cannot get there by conventional or unconventional (IVF) means.

And that’s how this blog has come to be. I hope you will take the opportunity to share in my journey to parenthood while giving support to other hopeful parents-to-be.



  1. Welcome to the Blogosphere!!

    I really admire your positive attitude and perspective. I look forward to reading about your experiences.

  2. HI there–

    I’m working backwards from where you are. I started my adoption blog after we brought home little Woobie, and now we’re going back to do some more infertility stuff and I started a new site at to log my experience with IVF 🙂

    Hope you find the support you need during your adoption journey.

  4. I cannot pretend to understand all of your frustrations (we may or may not have fertility issues — we never checked because we always planned to adopt), but I certainly understand the send of waiting (we waited about 7 years from the time we decided to adopt from China to the time we were old enough and, therefore, able to).

    I look forward to following your journey!
