Have you ever felt just blah somedays. I think I could cry at the drop of a dime lately. My birthday is coming up on Thursday and all I can think is that I'm another year older and still not a mom. I'm tired of everyone telling oh it will happen don't worry. I know in my head that it will, my heart isn't feeling it right now. I'm trying to find ways to keep myself busy to keep my mind off things but it never last. I just want my family that I've always wanted but I'm getting tired of wishing for it every birthday.

Wow so many poeple!

I was reading another blog and they gave a shoot out to those who have visited her blog. She didn't realize how many people pass by till she put up a counter to track it. I have a tracker but haven't really realized how many people have been tracked each day till now. I was surprised that my blog from Prince Edward Island, Canada was being seen so much. So I too wanted to thank everyone stopping by. Drop a note any time. I would love to hear from you.

Note to God


I love talkng to people about our journey but it seems there's always one out there that says the stupidest things. I try to not let it get to me but I found it very hard today. I was in Sobey's getting some geroceries when I ran into an old school mate. She went on and on about her life and her kids. She decided to ask me if I had any children of my own. Once I stated that we were adopting from Ethiopia I could see her face turn. She asked me why don't you just have your own children. WTF!!!!!! Just becuase I will not get the chance to shoot out one myself doesn't mean that my children are not my own! It took everything in me not to scream this at her. Some people can be so insensitive. Come on people do you not think that dealing with infertility for the past 7 years has no affect on my emotions? I don't need your pitty or telling me how sorry you are. I'm not half a woman because I can't have children of my own. I'm still the silly girl that shared some classed with you at school. I have not changed who I am as a person...I just changed on how I will expand my family.

Happy Mothers Day!

To My Mother
For all the times you gently picked me up,
When I fell down,
For all the times you tied my shoes
And tucked me into bed,
Or needed something
But put me first instead.
For everything we shared,
The dreams, the laughter,
And the tears,
I love you with a "Special Love"
That deepens every year.

Thanks for everything Mom, I love you!

Thank you!

Today I was cleaning the house and I heard a knock at the door. I was surprised to see that there was a delivery guy giving me flowers. It wasn't my birthday yet so why was I getting flowers? To my surprise they were flowers from my mother-in-law. I was taken back because the card said Happy Mother's day Love Mumsie. It was nice to know that someone was thinking of me on this day....knowing how hard each year it goes by hurting so much.

Thank you for the flowers! It meant more to me then you will ever know.

In Need of Shoes!

After watching the video that I have posted below has pulled on my heart to actually do something. I have asked all my friends and family to help me out in filling this suitcase with shoes for the orphans in Ehtiopia. I have already had people wanting to donate so I'm hoping that it won't take long to fill. I will keep you updated as the shoes come in!


Since there has been a few people that like my T-shirt my dear husband said that he could get some made for you guys if you want them. Any takers? I think he even has a design for China as well if anyone knows someone adopting from there. Let me know if you would like one!

I’ve decided to start collecting shoes to take to Ethiopia after seeing this video. If you want to know how to help out please contact me via email.
