This mountain....
I haven't written since the birth of our sweet D in April! It's now October.  We are almost 6 months in to this parenting thing... and our baby is growing so fast!  I've been wanting to get back to writing for some time.  Part of the problem is things happe...

Our happy ever after.
14 years. Looking back it's really hard to believe that we waded through 14 years of heartbreak to get to this year of our lives.  This year where we finally got answers... when we finally saw those better days we knew were just around the bend.  My name is...

A Bullet and A Target
How can it be possible to feel both gratitude and loss all at once? Is it
reasonable to admit that you feel the freedom left by an absence but you would
trade in that freedom happily any day? Or is this a cop-out because it was
never your choice to begin wi...

The (de)lusion that is control.
I've gained some (more) perspective and decided to adopt a new way of thinking (big surprise right!)   Over these 13 (count em!) years I've come to understand (and tried to process) a multitude of emotions. There have been moments of hope and excitement tha...

It's been a long year.
I haven't written in some time.... this year has been one that I haven't really been able to digest just yet.  I honestly believe I am still processing a lot of 2014... and it may be a while (if ever) before I can  make sense of it all. My father is gone. W...

Bittersweet
There have been times when I have wondered “why me?”   This is not a pity party I throw for
myself.   I wouldn’t trade my challenges
with anyone. I know that they were given to me for a reason. The emphasis is on
the matter of “why” more than the fact that ...

Not the Momma..... Part II: The Perfect Space
I feel like my last post could use some clarification.  What I intended to be about the value of those that do not parent; may have been communicated as a statement of feared inability.  That was not what I really intended. I think I know which sentence may...

Thank You.
I've been racking my brain for weeks trying to figure out what to write about. What is valid? What haven't I already said? What can the reader connect with no matter what their fertility status is?   I keep coming back to the same mantra.  Embrace what is. ...
Thank You.
Thank You.

Biological Clock..... BUSTED!
It's amazing really.  The amount of time you can spend thinking about something and still miss one very important angle. Once you discover it though, it's like a key that turns a lock within your mind. Realizations come in the most unexpected places and at ...
