Life is wonderful and messy all at the same time. I am thankful for the beauty and happiness that has been woven into my existence. I am equally thankful for the courage and strength that I have gained from wading through what at times seemed like mountains of mud. I was given up for adoption at the age of five and spent the next thirteen years in an abusive, turbulent adoptive home. I spent the first decade of my adult years tending to the wounds of childhood all the while striving to give my own children better than I what I had. Somewhere amongst room mom activities, play dates, dinner parties and keeping up with the Jones's I woke up one day to the pain of divorce, custody arrangements and loneliness. I spent the next few years knee deep in mess and heartache. My children's smiles and hugs, my grandmother's listening ear, my sweet friends time and laughter lessened the sting with time and slowly I began to see glimmers of hope. I sit here today surrounded by the realizations of that hope. October 8th, 2011 I married a man whose own courage and strength through adversity inspires me daily. He gently holds my heart, lessening the weight of lifelong scars. I am a mother, a wife, a friend, a writer a student pursuing a MFT degree. I write for solace, for peace, to clear my head, to shout my indignations and I write to remind myself of the lessons I have learned along the way. Thoughts on life, motherhood, marriage, divorce, grief, adoption, community, hope, etc. is what you will find here. A little bit of this, a little bit of that…in hopes to lift spirits, bring a smile or two, or to just to serve as a reminder that we are not alone in our journey.
Interests: Cooking, trying new restaurants and types of food, writing, playing board games with my husband and kids, reading, spending time with good friends.
