“I think we should adopt” – a journey of trying


“Four years. 4 years of trying, testing, tears, and more “whys” than I could count. Multiple failed fertility treatments, IVF, miscarriage, and feeling like a failure. Then on a car ride home from the beach in January it only took my dh looking at me and saying “I think we should adopt.” The weight I didn’t know I was carrying lifted off my shoulders & the tears fell. The next week we started the adoption process and just a few short months later we have our beautiful baby girl. She’s everything I dreamed my daughter would be and more. I’m thankful for all the pain bc it got us here but more than anything, I’m thankful for my dh saying that one sentence. “I think we should adopt.””

The journey of trying to conceive is different for everyone in Austin. Some are hard, some are easy, and some may just surprise you in the end. 🙂




Shelter In Place Quarantine Status

Travis county is under a “Shelter in Place” Quarantine status, so we are temporarily closed. As we are a non-essential business, we are following the law to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As we are doing our duty, we have both of our tiny humans home with us so communication is slowed down immensely to you and all of our clients. Please be patient during this world crisis, as they are not old enough to understand what is going on and that we need to work.

Since we can’t see anyone else, we were able to get in a little session with my own baby. The shirt JD is wearing belonged to his great grandpa John Daniel. It was made and embroidered by his mother our of a flour sack!
