Miracle Day: One Year Later

It isn’t difficult to call to mind and heart the feelings I had waking up exactly one year ago today.  Most of the time I can’t even remember how I felt one week ago today, but some days etch themselves into your brain and never fully fade from memory. I woke up that day and […]

Being Home: My Adjustment

How was the trip home? What is it like being home as a family of three? How is Elliott adjusting? How are you adjusting? How is attachment going? Is there anything you need? As time allows, I will answer these questions and just post them as they are completed (click links above for previous posts). […]

Being Home: The Trip

How was the trip home? What is it like being home as a family of three? How is Elliott adjusting? How are you adjusting? How is attachment going? Is there anything you need? These are questions we are asked on a daily basis, and questions I have been dying to answer here on our blog! […]

Our Wroclaw Apartment!

The Art of Distractability

Last night after dinner, Alex and I were sitting on the couch scratching the dogs, trying to put into words how we are feeling these days.  Weirdly, we don’t talk about it often.  It’s like the air around us or the wind blowing or the sun coming up each morning.  It is just there.  All […]

A Guide to Thanksgiving for the Emotionally Exhausted

Oh, holidays.  Depending on the season of your life, the holidays bring the very best or the very worst, don’t they?  You could probably safely go out on a limb and guess which side of the spectrum we found ourselves in leading up to Thanksgiving this year.  For the most part, I had done a […]
