Hunormous news

So the idea was to sleep in but multi-visits from the cubs and the cats and a MONUMENTAL message from a friend had me bright and upright earlier than I'd mentally diarised!  With fervent fire in my bones and purposeful passion in my heart, I once again remembered the movement that I am made for! This is why I ALWAYS come back to sharing our story and why I have said yes to yet another knee-trembling, mid-word-swallowing public speaking gig next month...

“How we adopted our family”

Thank you to Your Baby Magazine for featuring our 'Story of Love' this month! I gladly accept opportunities to share our adoption journey - it allows me to stretch my head above the 'day to day' rushing to the shops to buy more milk on route to fetching kids from school, right before refereeing the "teacher teacher" game gone awry (because mini designated student has brought his freewill bulldozer into the carefully arranged classroom made up of my no longer carefully arranged lounge cushions). Cue: mom's around the world, nod...

I am One in Six

...BUT have you ever tried keeping a secret like this for over a year? It gets less fun with each month... and at some point you pack away the baby booties (to be unwrapped at the next family gathering followed with shrieks of 'SURPRISE')... and you book that doctors appointment. Which leads to some very black and white letters on this piece of paper...

Fly high, little Aviator

His favourite thing in the world is an aeroplane and he is full of hope and expectation that one day he will be chosen.... to fly in one with his mom and dad to be. But in his words "I must be patient, I can't rush it" and so he draws pictures and keeps on hoping for his forever family. Well, Love is in the air because I got news that the little aviator boarded an aeroplane this weekend

Investing in my circle

When I got the message, I felt Christmas lunch tired and all 'NO-like' but I know how this goes.... i'll wake up the next morning without brain-bloat and will at some point have a solitary sandwiched thought wondering what the course would have been like, in-between stepping on lego, saying 'no' 10 times to a snack 1 minute after little noses turned up at their breakfast and mopping up spilt milk.... OR I COULD JUST SAY YES and probably LOVE IT... which I did...

On Radio: “Embryo Adoption Story”

Two weeks after sharing our Adoption Story on CCFM radio another talk show host asked to interview me on our Embryo Adoption story. So here it is - my journey to experiencing pregnancy and carrying my absolutely gorgeous (adopted) son into the world. YES, you read that right! Today we have two beautiful children and never in my wildest dreams … Continue reading On Radio: “Embryo Adoption Story”

On Radio: “Adoption story of hope”

I was recently approached to share our Adoption story live on radio. Once I managed to get around the unforgiving LIVE part and a tendency to hug my words with 'ums', I was actually super excited! Turns out I was streamed live on facebook as well but I decided to stick to my 'face for radio' debut instead 🙂 It … Continue reading On Radio: “Adoption story of hope”
