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”
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”
I constantly have my antenna poised for opportunities to chat to my children about adoption. My son is still too young to understand but he's party to the lingo and conversations that I have with my daughter. Thankfully I rarely need to cold call bring it up as I find everyday chats have made way for me to weave their … Continue reading Books on Embryo Adoption
On the 22nd January 2014, I ‘stumbled’ across a podcast called 'The Miracle of Snowflake Adoption' by James Dobson. He was explaining how he had played a role in the first ever Embryo adoption. My ears and heart were completely flooded for a moment. This meant TWO SIGNIFICANT things….. firstly that I might actually be able to carry and give … Continue reading Finding our snowflake baby
I’m not sure when this heartbeat first began… Maybe it was sometime mid 2013 when I first listened to James Dobsons podcast on ‘snowflake babies‘.

My mind is buzzing right now with all all that I would like to share - diving down to try and gather all the precious little details and then soaring up to try and grasp our new vista picture that's grown over this special chunk of time. How can I put it all into words? What … Continue reading The last 7 months, love & instinct
I have dreamt about writing this post for, oh... 7 years AND 7 weeks now... but I have barely been able to make myself a cup of coffee, which if I may add, is was generally my first cognitive waking thought. I stir, I blink and I think coffee! My husband and I sometimes have … Continue reading Behold… our baby girl!!!
A year that is not a leap year is called a common year. And, well... I'm really trusting that the likes of our 2012 leap day will spread into it being a very UNcommon year indeed... BECAUSE we had an uber-important-life-changing-appointment at the end of Feb. Only on the actual morning, whilst driving to meet with our … Continue reading Best Leap Day Ever!
I kind of wanted to at least write 1 post per month.... as I have a small fear that like my old gym contracts and empty photo albums, I may fall behind and find it overwhelming to know where to start running, printing and writing from... and then this will become like my other poor … Continue reading Marchmania
CERTAINTY, ASSURANCE, CONFIDENCE, SURENESS, NO SHADOW OF A DOUBT. Our planes don't just land here by chance. These are the final destinations that we move all of our family and belongings to...................in ox wagons. They are not just last-minute holiday destinations. And I believe these are the gem places that we need to find! But let … Continue reading conviction! adoption?
