AugieI am a 26 year old substitute teacher in the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley. I have my Associates Degree in Education and would love to go back to school at some point. <br><br> My husband and I have been together four and a half years. In that time we have had four miscarriages. We are currently trying to conceive with medical assistance in hopes of bringing home #1 soon.

Failed Adoption

I contacted a woman regarding adoption a couple of weeks ago, and at first it seemed perfect. There were some red flags from the beginning, but given her situation, we decided to take the wait and see approach. However, as time went on, we became more and more uncomfortable with the situation. In fact, in…

Scare of my Life!

Okay, so this is a bit late, but I still wanted to post it. On my way home from babysitting last Wednesday, I got a call from my husband warning me about an accident. He told me, “There is no way around it, but make sure you’re in the left lane, because a car is…

Living with Histiocytosis

By now, it’s no secret that I am very involved with the “Histio Family” in honor of my best friend’s son. As a result of my involvement, I have “met” many warriors. One such warrior is 9 year old Taylor. She has ND CNS LCH, or Neuro-degenerative Central Nervous System Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. What this…

Due Dates and adoption

Based on EDD’s (estimated due dates), I should have an almost 4 year old (in Oct), a 3 year old (next week), a 2 year old (in less than a month), and an 8 month old (tomorrow). I hate July. It’s one of those months that provides a strong reminder of what I’m not allowed…

And it starts!

Within hours of the announcement we had people asking how they could help. A few of those ladies, rather than asking, offered to run a fundraiser for us. The first is now up and running: https://kcardwell.scentsy.us/Buy?partyId=38314673 Kristin has gracious offered to let this run for 6 weeks and is giving us 100% of her profit…

New plan (again)

Hopefully, this will be our last ever ‘new plan.’ Today, we went to an adoption seminar. I won’t bore you with all the details. I will say that Chris and I are both glad we went. There were three attorneys present that spoke about the local laws. Going in, I was nervous that this would…

Mother’s Day

Since my losses, I dread Mother’s Day each year. As the day approaches I talk to Mom and express my sadness and what-not. Every year, she goes out of her way to do something small in honor of my babies. This year, however, the week(s) leading up to Mother’s Day was/were a breeze. I knew…

A Post In Which I Talk About A Bit Of Everything

I know, I know, I’m a bad blogger. Once again it has been way to long. I’ll start off by announcing that our first NTNP (not trying, not preventing) month was a bust. I didn’t track ovulation, but I did start four days early. I’ll see what happens next month and maybe we’ll start tracking…

An agreement

Chris and I have reached a ttc/adoption agreement. You see, Chris isn’t ready to be done. He wants to jump into soy if I’m not pregnant. I, on the other hand, am very ready to be done. After four years of losses and infertility, I’m ready to move on. We talked about it again this…

Left behind?

Every few months or so on my RPL support board, we go through a changeover of sorts. It usually consists of a number of members getting pregnant. In my experience, when several conceive at the same time they almost always go on the get their rainbows together. Of course with new babies the members start…
