3 years blogging

Just realized it's been exactly 3 years today since I wrote my first blog post about MRKH. I don't do it as often as I would like, but it is pretty therapeutic. Thank you everyone for your love and support through this process.

Friends are People too

Yup, we are at that age. People are getting pregnant on purpose...I'm cool with that, as long as you don't start to suck as a friend.

-Still make time to hang out with your friends who don't have kids.
-Every once and a while, leave your kid with a parent, babysitter, grandparent and have a fun night out.
-Don't tell me I don't understand because I don't have kids (even if it's true).
- Let me compare my dog to your's fun 😊

That's all

Embarrassing Bodies

There is a show in the UK called Embarrassing Bodies, last night they did a show on MRKH. Check it out here:  

Thoughts on adoption...

I find the process of adoption frustrating. There are so many children who need loving homes, why are there so many obstacles for parents who want to provide a loving home for children?

1) I found a "cheap" non profit open adoption company that starts their fees at $28,000 ( no, I did not misplace that comma) ha! $28,000?!? How could I afford to support after paying that amount?

2) Foster to adopt, you wait 1-2 years to get placed, then maybe have to give the child back.

3) International adoption...expensive, and unrealistic for us.  We would really like to help people in our own backyard.

Soooo, now I'm ready to get creative.  Go to the boarder and take one of the 50,000 children that our government doesn't know what do do with? Start a social media campaign?  Anyone have a good / creative idea? We are open to suggestion!
