First Day of Preschool

So I am sitting in a @starbucks ☕️on First Ave recovering from the post traumatic stress and shock of hearing my kid scream and cry "MOMMY" as I left and the social worker told me, "you need to leave, we will handle this." This whole #momming thing is tough on the heart ❤️ First you don't want them to grow up so quickly, and when it's finally time for them to spread their wings and step into the next phase of life, you pray that it's without tears and screaming. I know this is the first of many rights of passage that I will go through with Julia, but for today, I needed my own space to step aside, sit with my ☕️ and...

Top Moments

Top moments of 2017 means a lot of things to a lot of people. To a birth mom it probably means a whole slew of other things. Every year at this time, I create a book and fill it with pictures & stories of the adventures Julia and I had and try and give the birth mom a little peak into how Julia’s life is, and how she has grown up. I include pictures of birthdays, holidays, Hiking, campfires, family time and just simple moments like food shopping with her cousins.  I often get the question, “is it an open Adoption?” And “do you keep in touch with the birth mom”. It is open, and this is what I signed...
