3rd of March: interview with Klara :)

For the last few months I was exchanging emails with an infertility survivor from France (she is one of the lucky ones, she is blessed with two kids now).

I really like her. And I liked her genuine interest in me. How does it feel knowing, that you wish kids more then anything in the word and not be able to have them. Ever. 

She realized that in France there aren't many stories out there (or blogs), about living (eventually) happily after infertility. So she decided to make an interview with me. 

I am looking forward to the 3rd of March when the interview will be published. I will post a link. 

PS: The photo of Lone Cypress was taken in October 2014, during our drive along Pacific Highway 1. I just love this tree! Did you know that this is one of the most photographed trees in North America?

My NonAdopting story

Some stories are not easy to write.
My NonAdopting story will be written and published in March.
I will let you know when I write it, so we can publish our stories on the same day.

Why we didn't adopt. Sharing our stories.

Why don't you just adopt?  If you've battled infertility for long enough, you've been asked this question.  It's not an easy or simple question to answer.  Since knowledge is power and we belong to a community of women supporting other women, I would like to ask for others to share their adoption story, specifically why they chose not to adopt.   

Adoption is a beautiful thing and it is a wonderful way for many people to grow their families.  Adoption is also an intensely personal decision made by a couple after carefully considering a number of factors that are unique to them.  In short, there is no universal right answer to the "why don't you just adopt?" question.  The right answer is unique to the couple that makes the decision, including the decision not to adopt.  By listening to stories different from our own we can learn how to be more supportive.

I have decided to share my story, the story of why we didn't adopt, on February 28th and would love it if others wrote their story on the same day too.

PS: photo was taken on our Sunday walk. It was beautiful to walk through snowy forest.

To be written: The main reason why we didn't adopt

There is a blog post that has been in my mind at least for the last two years.
It has a title The main reason why we didn't adopt.
The reason includes one once dear person so it is not easy to write about it.
If you are interested, do visit my blog in a week or two.
