My First Post

I have never had a blog before. I don't know what I am doing. I am just going to give it a try.

My husband and I are trying to adopt a newborn domestically. We have been waiting almost 14 months. It feels even longer since it has actually been 6 years since we first tried fertility meds. So, I have been Waiting Lisa for a long time now.

I provide care for school-age children in my home. I did it for many years in a daycare center, but when we decided to adopt, I started my own business in our house so I would be home with our baby when the time came. I love it, but I miss having co-workers. I crave adult interaction. That's why I joined twitter. But, sometimes I have so much on my mind that I need to break free from the 140 character limit.

I don't know if I will be any good at this. I decided I can't care about who will read it or what they will think. This is something I have always wanted to try, so I am.

I have no idea where this blog will go, but if I had to guess, there will be posts about my adoption wait, working with children, and trying to be green. Fair warning to all, I am a liberal and I can promise you there will be some political rants mixed in. I can't help myself.


  1. Welcome to blogging =) I can't wait to read your posts!

  2. Looking forward to reading about your adoption journey. And all those liberal rants, too!

  3. I think you'll be great at blogging! And it's a fantastic way to get support during the wait. I will definitely be back to read more!

  4. Good luck in your journey. We adopted our little miracle 11 months ago. I've been in your shoes and know the pain and heartache of infertility. May you have peace in your soul as you go through the waiting period. It definitely isn't an easy road... but it is richly rewarding.
