...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...
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”
In September 2010, I was asked to speak at a conference in front of 600 women. Gulp! I said yes, NOT FOR THE LOVE OF PUBLIC SPEAKING AT ALL!! Bright lights & early mornings are not my comfort zone, but something resounded in me and I just knew that this was absolutely what I had to … Continue reading Finding spring in winter
Don't you just love SPRINGtime? It's a beloved season! I find myself trailing around the garden, listening to the birds sing, analysing the new buds, protecting the sprouts (as if i'm needed for that, thanks panj but you aint God!), and stroking the brand new, innocent leaves.

I must write! But I feel blankly unable to even articulate my head and heart to myself. At the moment, my dreams are far more higher grade than my day-time thoughts... Well, let's start with a simple detail to forest my way thro.... Ok - hub and I recently returned from an INCREDIBLE, long awaited … Continue reading Rocking my hashtag & achtung heart
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
I think my hubster is secretly excited about my new bloghobby, especially around 11pm when I generally enter a second verbal wind and his only intention is to snore. I'm getting into it - got a few tags going on down and some links, have 1 reader - YAY - and it's great just jotting … Continue reading Perfectionista
I read Where Is God When It Hurts about 5 years ago, before we knew. I remember feeling drawn to buy it and at that time had a fleeting thought that I hoped I wasn't being prepared for hard times ahead(!) I have found so often that God has gone ahead and prepared a way for me or given me a … Continue reading prepared for pain?
My life does not hinge around this one desire: To mother children from my womb & to see my hubster become a dad. Yes it's a BIG desire and i'm spending time blogging all about it right now so you'd think perhaps this takes up much of my head & heart space. Some days yes it does, … Continue reading purpose in my pain
