When the world says, “Give up,” Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”- Unknown

I've been playing around with what to name my blog.  "My Journey to Motherhood" seemed so general and uninteresting.  So I'm going with a quote I found today that is helping me to keep going.  I must admit, I'm wavering.  I'm having doubts, but then something in me silences those doubts and says "what if...  What if the next time works?  What if next time I do carry to term and give birth?"  I just can't give up.

I'm currently in the 2WW  (two week wait) and have been having a very emotional day.  For some reason I just feel like crying.  Not sure why.  I just do.  Maybe it's work, maybe it's where I am in my cycle, maybe it's the challenge of handling a toddler entering the terrible twos!  (Of course I wouldn't change a thing so I won't complain). I love being a momma and that is why I am still pushing forward to carry my first pregnancy to term and give birth.  Adoption has been a wonderful blessing in our lives but I want my daughter to have a little brother or sister.  I want to be a family of 4. 


  1. don't give up Lisa, and yes I read your posts...I find them inspirational, so don't give up!!! Jeni

  2. Thanks Jeni I appreciate it.

  3. I love reading your blog. I too have had early losses, 3 of them between 6-8 weeks. My husband and I are debating on to keep trying or to look to adoption. I have looked into Lifetime and was just wondering what your thoughts were on long was the process much did it cost in the end....Did you have the money saved or did you fiance some of it?
    So many questions..

  4. Hey Nicole, I am so sorry for your losses. If you want to email me I would be happy to tell you all about Lifetime Adoptions. They were amazing!
