ICLW June- Speed Dating IV

Hello everyone. Thanks for visiting. I am an adoptive mom to a 3 year old, struggled to conceive through ART for four years, and founded a non profit. Please take a look around.

The following post describes one of my IF experiences:
A Pinker Shade of Pale

You can read more on the ride side bar under PFM Best Posts.

Here is a brief Q&A to get to know me better.

Q: Favorite food
A: Bagels and cream cheese

Q: Favorite place to visit
A: My cottage in the Thousand Islands

Q: What kind of car do you drive?
A: Honda C.R-V - sporty yet practical for the wintry Rochester weather

Q: Favorite season
A: Fall

Q: Chore you like doing least?
A: Putting away laundry

Q: What's on your playlist right now?
A: "Reflecting Light" Sam Philips - "My Good Gal" OCMS - "Nightingale" Norah Jones - "No Other Love" Chuck Prophet

Q: Why did you start blogging?
A: I began blogging to log our adoption journey and to speak about the perils of infertility. I created this blog after founding the non-profit as a way to connect with others, tell my story, and help educate on IF and adoption as well as miscarriage, stillbirth and surrogacy to name a few

Q: What's your middle name?
A: Catherine- I share it with my paternal grandmother and 2 other cousins

Q: What type of adoption did you do?
A: We adopted internationally from S. Korea. Our son was 15 months when he came home.

Q: Fears/ phobias?
A: I don't mind bugs or spiders. I don't mind heights. Swimming in the ocean scares me. I despise stuffed animal heads. Weird, I know.

Q: Biggest goal for the short term?
A: Finish my book! It has been a three year project

Q: Biggest goal for the long term?
A: Be a great mom and make my child feel loved and accepted.

My husband is afraid of swimming in the ocean too. Actually, anything other than a pool. Which stinks because there is nothing I love more than swimming. Not that we get many chances to swim in the ocean anyway.

Good luck with your book!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for following. I am already following yours :)

Happy ICLW!

~~Sigh~~ Laundry. I have a Baby Blues comic taped to a cupboard in my laundry room that I think says it all:

"Nothing is certain but death and taxes. And laundry."

Pretty cool - I may have to use your questions at some point because they're great!

Happy ICLW!
