I love you... Soon! I could not get myself to say those three tiny words just yet... I would walk around the house, with this new baby in my arms and I would say "I love you!!! ARGH... SOON!!! I can't lie... I don't love you yet, but I promise that I will love you... Continue Reading →
Mom Log – Part 6: Thank you John Wayne!
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 →
Mom Log – Part 5: A “mom” feeling?
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?
Mom Log – Part 2: Reality Check!
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 →

Single Mom By Choice – Part 16: One month
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",... Depending on your cycle, your next month comes sooner, or later, or irregularly - but what we all have in common is that we wish it were this month...
Single Mom By Choice – Part 11: The File
I remember sitting in the waiting room of the Montreal Fertility Clinic and seeing this couple come out of the doctor's office with a huge smile, tears and exclamations. Pregnant! She was finally pregnant!
