A blog about us. our lives. our struggles. our victories.

Rob and Anne-marie

What I mean by that title is…as a family, let’s all go to bed at 8:30 p.m. and…SLEEP! Tuesday Reagan had her Nemours appt. and b/c she’s doing well eating (she has about 150g of food/day) and b/c she’s growing like a weed, and b/c she’s been able to tolerate seven oz. of formula via G-tube […]

Today Rob took Reagan to therapy and I was able to get a glorious nap, which helped to make up for my 5 a.m. wake up call. While in the waiting room, he spoke to a little boy’s grandmother about the little boy who was there for therapy. The grandmother told Rob that he was […]

The other day I decided to look at Reagan’s adoption video…with her birthday coming up, I think I was getting sentimental about the day she was born and wanted to relive those first few moments. I was shocked that in just a year, almost 20,000 people have viewed it. Before the adoption video, I did […]

As Reagan’s first birthday approaches, I have so much to reflect on over this past year. Looking back, I don’t know how we did it. She has never been sick, even though I was sick for about a month, and Rob somehow had a fever for a brief moment. We’ve figured out her food, even […]

April 13, 2013 was the first time Rob and I have been able to go church since Reagan was born.  Man, it was amazing to go and see our friends and sing and worship and just be in the place we have called our church home for the past four years or so.  Sure we […]

Terrified.  Angry.  Sad. Never did I think those would be the three feelings I had 4-days into being a parent, but there I was. You have to understand, I’m just like you.  I live life on the positive side, love to laugh, and see God’s beauty in everything from the obvious sunrise/sunrise to the unapparent […]

It was the kind of news that is etched into your memory forever. Like watching your child being born, except the complete opposite of emotions.  Perhaps it is more like remembering where you were and what you were doing when the attacks on 9/11 happened.  Because that’s what it felt like, and that’s what it […]

After putting our adoption story out there for the world, as well as our daughter’s diagnosis of GA-1, we received tons of emails, texts and phone calls.  The outpouring of love was amazing and Rob and I were truly touched by it all. So many people had those initial feelings that Rob and I did […]

This blog is just to tell our story.  I started it in 2011 only for myself…and I wrote sporadically when I felt like sharing something.  The blog was private, which kind of defeats the purpose of the blog, but what I was writing at the time I felt was no one’s business. One of the […]

After three or so years to try and have a baby, we’ve decided to pursue adoption. We asked ourselves, “do we want to be parents, or just try to get pregnant.” The answer to us was clear…we want to be parents. Here’s how we came to that decision… The doors to seeking fertility treatment just […]
