We Have Been Here Beforeperchancetodreamhoops

Mon, 20 Sep 2010 18:14:15 +0000

I don’t mind the cyclical nature of the seasons.  I’m equally annoyed by both winter and summer and equally in love with both spring and fall.  I used to love the start of a new school year as much as I loved the start of summer vacation. But the renewal of adoption forms is a […](image)

Memories Reduxperchancetodream

Sat, 11 Sep 2010 21:41:26 +0000

I’ve never been sure that this blog is the correct place for this essay.  But I’d forgotten that I’d already posted it here and I’m not sure if it’s ever inappropriate to remember that each day is precious.(image)

What the Wings MeanperchancetodreamimagesIMG_1878sm

Tue, 24 Aug 2010 18:40:43 +0000

I’ve been drafting this post for a long time but without a firm idea of what held its myriad topics together. But the other night hubby and I were at a party for his department and, someone asked what the wings meant and it came together. What wings? Well (and dad, you might want to […](image)

Is this thing still on?perchancetodream

Fri, 11 Jun 2010 21:14:34 +0000

I know it’s been a while……but such is the ebb and flow in the wonderful world of international adoption. We DO finally have a registration number (why it took almost 3 months to get it has gone unanswered but now that we have it, I don’t really care) for Bulgaria.  I would almost suspect that […](image)

Another Year, Another Mother’s Dayperchancetodream

Sun, 09 May 2010 00:34:32 +0000

I DO promise a post of my own soon.  But I read this today and it was so appropriate that I felt that I had to post it. When my own mother passed away, I developed a bit of a hatred for Mother’s Day.  Let’s just say that infertility didn’t help make that any better. […](image)

Silent No Moreperchancetodream

I have a running list of things to blog about.  But those will wait for another day. In the meantime, I urge everyone reading this to follow the link below.  As a project to promote National Infertility Awareness Week, which ends tomorrow, the ever-diligent Mel along with RESOLVE created Project IF – asking the question […](image)

Weighing Inperchancetodream

Thu, 15 Apr 2010 20:34:03 +0000

Because I know that a number of my “real life” readers have no experience with adoption and are coming on this journey alongside us and learning as we all go, I feel like I need to weigh in on the recent disrupted adoption of a little boy from Russia.  (If you’ve somehow missed this story, […](image)

What The Governments Have Been Up Toperchancetodreambuilding

As someone who spent a number of years after college without health insurance – and had those years be ones in which I was dealing with a number of expensive health issues – which caused debt that it took me a DECADE to get out of, I was in favor of Obama’s health care reform […](image)

Well….no. But I did wake to a startling revelation the other morning. I completely forgot about the follistim in the fridge.  You know, that stash that I was going to use for my last ditch unmonitored cycle because hey, you never know and it wasn’t like I could give all of those half-used vials to […](image)

Family TreeperchancetodreamFAML01family-tree-1-3

Tue, 16 Mar 2010 15:53:46 +0000

There are some things that have been stomping through my mind of late and Cali’s post at Creating Motherhood really brings it to a head. I too have been watching parts of NBC’s new genealogy show. I’ve always been fascinated by genealogy even though I’m constantly frustrated with the impossibility of tracing my own Eastern […](image)

Building Patienceperchancetodreamgot-patience-680x510

Wed, 10 Mar 2010 19:56:06 +0000

In the land of infertility, “Patience” means getting through the two week wait after your procedure until you know whether or not you’re pregnant.  Then it means waiting a week for your scan and waiting  a week for…..well, you get the idea.  There are lots of tiny milestones all of which make you hold your […](image)

Three Dead Treesperchancetodream

Thu, 18 Feb 2010 21:11:15 +0000

A lot has happened since I last wrote.  And nothing has happened.  All at once.  Basically, I’ve been alternately (1) swamped at work (2) on a wonderful vacation to New Orleans to celebrate hubby’s birthday (3) getting ready for an impromptu visit from my dad and (r) running around jumping through bureaucratic hoops to finish […](image)

Book Lustperchancetodream

Tue, 26 Jan 2010 19:26:20 +0000

I did something on Friday that I rarely do anymore.  Something that made me feel almost guilty as if I’d eaten a 3-scoop hot fudge sundae. What was this horrid act you might ask? I spent a half hour in a bookstore. Now anyone who knows me knows that there are many things in life […](image)

Winter Warmth and the Gift of Maybeperchancetodream

Fri, 08 Jan 2010 17:26:39 +0000

We were meant to have a snow storm yesterday – a blizzard by Nashville standards – 4 whole inches.  Instead we got about a 1/2 inch and a whole lot of bitter cold.  A Michigander by birth, I have to admit to a love of snow – particularly when I’m inside and warm and looking […](image)

The Year Aheadperchancetodream

Fri, 01 Jan 2010 21:45:20 +0000

I’ve started most years by making resolutions: big life changing-ones usually along the lines of: I need to get into/out of a relationship, sort out fertility issues, move to or from a state, (or country) change jobs, etc….. So it’s a bit of relief to realize that there is nothing along those lines that I […](image)

Moving Right Alongperchancetodream

I don’t have time for a “real” post but just wanted to let everyone know that we’ve received our USCIS approval (known as the I-797). Seeing “You’ve been approved to adopt two children from the following Convention country: Bulgaria” in writing is indeed freaky.  (We aren’t necessarily wedded to adopting TWO kids….but because we weren’t […](image)

In a Holiday Kind of Moodperchancetodream

Wed, 16 Dec 2009 19:15:26 +0000

As anyone who knows me in real life will attest – I love holidays.  I often joke that the only reason I married someone who wasn’t Jewish was so that I could celebrate Christmas as well as Chanukah.  That isn’t true but I do love twinkly lights and reindeer. Anyhow, that’s my excuse for not […](image)

I’m Cross-Pollinating today! For one day, bloggers in the ALI community swap posts without revealing who their guest blogger is as a part of Xpol. We sign up, we get matched, and agree to post the other blogger’s post in our own blog without revealing their name/blog. To see all the other busy bees cross-pollinating […](image)

So I Called the FBI…perchancetodream

Thu, 03 Dec 2009 17:52:02 +0000

Sorry, had to use that title as it’s really absurd that I picked up the phone this morning and called the FBI.  The reason?  Because in a weak (and ridiculous) moment of wanting to save money, I sent our fingerprints and requests for our Identification Records regular mail. And now all I can think of […](image)
