The Adoption: Growth

I was skeptical about writing another blog. I’m not sure if it was because I felt like I let myself down, or was just frustrated with my circumstances. Either way, I went for it. For the past 6 months, I’ve been in what I… Continue Reading “The Adoption: Growth”

The Adoption: Homestudy #1

That’s a picture of my certificate of completed preparation courses 🙂 I’ll try to keep this blog as short and to the point as possible. Firstly, it has been one heck of a journey getting my apartment ready for this child. Emotionally, spiritually, and… Continue Reading “The Adoption: Homestudy #1”

The Adoption: Certification Week 2

Strawberry Schmear.

Good morning you guys! Okay, so I generally don’t blog about food or anything pertaining to food, mainly because I don’t think you care what I eat but this recipe made my morning. Beside the fact that it’s my first off day in forever,… Continue Reading “Strawberry Schmear.”

Let me preface this blog with a couple of things: 1. The title wasn’t meant to trick you into reading it. No where in here do intend on twisting my words and giving my moms any recognition dealing with Father’s day. I titled it… Continue Reading “I Won’t Tell My Single Mother Happy Father’s Day.”
