Well, it’s time for a few changes around here!
New template? Check!
New ideas? Check!
Explanation? Here ya’ go:
I started this blog to chronicle my feelings, experiences, ideas and journey into a semi-open transracial adoption. Now that Little Man is home, I feel that this blog will become more….encompassing.
Will I still talk about adoption? Yes.
Will I still talk about infertility? Yes. (in fact, probably my next major post will be on one aspect of loss that infertility brings…stay tuned!)
But now I’m a Momma. So there will be a fair amount of posts about parenting, Little Man, and our experiences in growing as a family.
Also, I really think I’ll be posting more about faith as well.
And transracial families and what that’s like in a small midwestern community.
And what it’s like to transition into being a stay at home mom and homemaker.
I say that, because I know there are those of you out there still waiting for a match or still struggling to conceive or still waiting for the birth of your matched little one or you’ve had a failed adoption.
And maybe my honest blatherings about the post-adoption part of adoption hurts you instead of gives you hope.
I want to believe I give hope to people….
But maybe it hurts you to read about my Little Man, because your arms are still empty and aching.
Maybe it hurts you to read about my sleepless nights and how clueless I feel because you want to believe that when your little one comes home all of your angst and troubles will end. And I’m living proof that although parenting is beyond my wildest imaginations and I have a joy I can’t explain…it’s hard. And learning to be a Momma is hard. And being home every day is hard. Not bad…just hard.
Maybe you aren’t reading at all 🙂
So…it’s time for some changes.
I hope you’ll still accompany me on my journey. And feel free to ask questions…I’d like to help those that I can!
