Hello! Is anybody out there?! If you’re still here, then thank you so much for sticking with me through my very long hiatus from blogging. I can’t believe it’s been five years because it feels like a hot minute! Five years! That’s five years since our daughter came home too.
I never intended to stop blogging but, well, life happens. After we were matched the weeks whizzed by, through introductions, bringing our daughter home, just being parents… the more I got caught up in our new life, the more I got out of the routine of blogging. Then I didn’t know how to continue with this site as I was no longer a yummy mummy (I use the term yummy mummy very loosely) in waiting; it felt like that chapter had closed. I did try setting up another blog as a follow on, and taking more of a family lifestyle approach but quickly found that wasn’t for me. I know how to write about trying to conceive, miscarriages, ectopic pregnancy and adoption. I don’t know how to write about fashion and toys for kids, or days out as a family. I’m not saying I won’t incorporate some of that going forward but it’s not the main focus of my writing. The purpose of this blog has always been, for me, a kind of therapy, and to let others know they’re not alone in any of this exciting but sometimes difficult road to parenthood.
Once upon a time, when we were going through all the losses, I never thought we’d have a family. Now we’re hoping to grow our family of three to four, but more about that in another post 😉
