It’s been quite the last few years! I’ve wanted kids for so long. I’ve been pricked and prodded both physically and emotionally through those years of trying to get pregnant and then, unraveled every layer of my life to be approved as a foster parent. Finally I am a parent and I am loving it!... Continue Reading →
Is there a feeling that comes with being a mom? Biological mom, foster mom, step-mom, adoptive mom... hell even fur-mom! Do we all FEEL the same?
Next week, I turn 43… Only a few days and I will be the age my boyfriend’s mothers was when she passed away… she died so young, but so accomplished as a mom. She was 43 and Alex was 18. Her children were young adults, but I am sure she felt like she did not... Continue Reading →
A shinny new title will be needed for this blog. As you may have already read in my last post, I’ve turned a page. I had a major decision to make. It had been more than a year since my 2019 embryo transfer and I was now eligible to apply to the Banques Mixtes du... Continue Reading →

One month... It's only 31 days of our lives tops, but boy, oh boy! It sounds and feels like it's an eternity when you are trying to get pregnant and month after month, you hear "maybe next month", "next month is the one", "by next month, all this will be behind you", "you'll be smiling next month",...
