I'm still here

I apologize (yet again) for disappearing.

But life.

And work.

And ignoring my IF has gotten in the way.

I guess after slogging in the trenches for nine plus years, I can successfully forget.

Or at least distract.


It's pretty easy when work keeps me busy and when I get home I'm spent.

No more juice for blogging.

And not enough sadness to want to get it off of my chest.

But don't worry, I'm still praying for all of you.  If you're a member of St. Gerard IF group on FB, I'm there much more often, call it easy access.

I'm wondering about my place in the bloggosphere. There really isn't anything interesting about waiting for an adoption match.

I've waited for nine years for my body to work.

And I continue to wait.

Same old, same old. Only this time there meds are less plentiful.

Thank God.

I'll try not to let months pass before I post here again. Please pray that we have something interesting to blog about soon.

St. Jude, pray for us!


  1. I hope your class is doing better; I'm glad to hear that you're able to distract yourself.

    I'm sure you're tired of waiting, and I pray that your wait will soon be over.

  2. Prayers for fruitful waiting!

  3. Prayers for the wait ahead. Hoping it's super short!

  4. Praying for your miracle to come soon! I check your blog often for news. I waited over 7 years for my adopted blessings so I can relate to what you are going through. God Bless, Kelly

  5. Hi! I am asking Catholics to sign this very important petition set up by the survivors' network, SNAP- http://www.snapnetwork.org/

    Here's the full petition:

    USCCB - "Stop the legal bullying!"

    As a Catholic, we urge you to publicly denounce, and stop, the bullying tactics used by bishops and church defense lawyers against those seeking help from the support group SNAP, including victims of abuse by clerics, witnesses, whistleblowers, police, prosecutors and journalists.

    Sign here: http://www.snapnetwork.org/snap_petition?recruiter_id=35411

  6. This post is promising in a round about way. It sounds as though you are in a place in your life that finally has a bit of calm water. And that's good! Prayers continued!

  7. ^ I agree with Patty. Blogging is a weird ebb and flow (I'm learning). In my happiest times, I can be away from the keys a good bit. I will keep your health, IF, and adoption intentions in my prayers!

  8. "Not enough sadness to want to get it off my chest" was exactly how I felt this past year. That's a good thing!! And, Missy, you may not think there's anything exciting about waiting for an adoption match, but WE DO!!! So please, when you have a moment during the week to appease all your readers, let us know how the process is going, how you and Mr JB are planning, leads, fears, happies, and sillies, we want it all :)
    We love ya!

  9. Haven't checked in on you in awhile...I will be praying for your birth mom and your match and all that's to come. You know my heart is for adoption - it made me a mom. Asking God to bring that miracle soon.
