Our Journey

Leaving Korea 7
Thoughts of an expectant mama...

The path that led us here {on the blessing of infertility}
A letter to me at 23 {on the Sisterhood}
Our own {on the sweet truth I wish everyone knew}
A Glimpse {on waiting for The Call}
Adoption Q&A Part 1
Adoption Q&A Part 2

*****

Our Little One {meet Josiah YeJoon}
Referral Call {on the details of the day that changed us}
I'm a Mom {on being a new mama}
To make you feel my love {on a love across miles}
I'm not a sprinter {on the perfect pace of this journey}
It is both {on joy and loss}
If {on the struggle between fear and trust}

*****

Travel Call!!!
Here he is {on the day that began the rest of our life}
Korea Trip Days 1&2 {a rewind post}
Korea Trip Day 3 {a rewind post}

*****

Our new journey begins...


We are HOME!!! {on leaving Korea as a family of 3}
My own {not flesh of my flesh}
The bench {on a special place}

The blink of an eye {on celebrating our referral anniversary}
