♥ About Me

Hello! I am Tammy and the proud owner of this here little blog.
So, you want to know a little bit about me?

I am currently 36 years old (I really don't like that I'm closer to 40 than 30 so try not to bring that up, mmk?). I'm happily married to and incredibly patient, kind, understanding and sometimes deserving of a medal man - Chris. We met nearly 18 years ago on a blind date. Yes, blind date! WHAT! I know, pretty incredible. We were married in 1997 and continue to learn from each other every day. He is truly a great man and and even more amazing father.

After years of unsucessful tries at getting pregnant we decided to inquire about adoption. Before we knew it, we were in a book of 'waiting parents' with a private adoption agency. And we waited, and waited, and waited. We decided not to renew our 'membership' so-to-speak and took a break from the baby madness.

A short year later, a former co-worker called me to discuss foster parenting through our local family services agency. Skeptically, I listened. We went through classes required and just like that we were approved to be foster/adopt parents. The waiting commenced.

Finally in 2009 we received a phone call that turned our world upside, literally! I simply remember my husband saying "Sisters? That's more than one, right?" LOL! All the while I had a huge smile on my face!!

Here we are 2 years after that infamous phone call and we are finalizing adoption papers. ♥ Talk about being blessed. I am undecidely one of the most blessed people I know!
