Behind the Blogger
I'm Kat, a happily-married wife to Ray and new mama, living in Illinois by way of Wisconsin (Go Badgers!) by way of Illinois. 😄 And as much as I lament living in a cold-weather state, I'm a true Midwest girl at heart (and can't deny how much I love a good snowstorm).
I started this blog mostly as a therapeutic way for me to explore difficult topics of infertility and grief, and in doing so have found that although these topics are not talked about often in everyday life, many struggle with them. I've learned that sometimes, seeing someone else voice what you're privately feeling is supportive and healing in and of itself. So, this is my documented journey of resolve to not give up on the dream of having a child, as well as my experience in grieving the loss of someone I loved.
Somewhere along the way, we found hope and joy in the amazing gift of embryo adoption and our sweet miracle baby boy was born in October 2022. My son is now my constant reminder of the many embryos still frozen and waiting for adoption, and my hope is that more of those precious lives can get "out of the freezer" and have a chance at life.
