…I’m still here, I promise!!
Hmm, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve written anything. Quite honestly, it often felt like there was just nothing to say. Or that I had nothing worth saying. But reality is that so much has happened in the almost year since I was last here. It’s been well over a year since I last… Continue reading
I Am Not Giving Up On Her
It’s been months since I’ve heard from birthdad… He moved hundreds of miles away last summer for work. We stayed in touch for a while, texting multiple days a week. Then around my birthday, he just stopped communication.. I kept trying to check on him, but it was hard when I got nothing back and… Continue reading

It’s Been Twenty Years
So many people in my life remember where they were and/or what they were doing when they heard about the planes hitting the first World Trade Center tower. I don’t remember, and sometimes that makes me feel like I’m somehow less than. But I was only 8. I was in 3rd grade. I had no… Continue reading

Total Shock & Awe
I got off my monthly Bethany birthmom group call and took my coffee mug back downstairs. I had a piece of mail from BraveLove on the table, and dad asked what BraveLove is. I didn’t know what to say. He’s never really been one to want to know about my adoption. So I said I… Continue reading
A Truly Terrible, Awful Month…
Okay y’all, I know I’ve been absent for like two and a half months. I wish I had an explanation, but there is just no reason for it. At least for August and the first half of September… I’m going to try to give you the short~ish version of a car saga that lasted for… Continue reading
On the Other Side of Insanity
Well, it’s August now – and somehow I made it through July… Walking out of July I felt broken, and still do to a degree, but also somehow stronger than I was before. I know there are always struggles, but there are always good things too. It’s so much easier to get caught up in… Continue reading
Two-Thirds Through Insanity
I can’t believe my visit with my daughter on the 11th has already come and gone. I don’t know how it’s possible. Those two and a half hours went so fast. It’s like that time was just gone in the blink of an eye. She didn’t want anything to do with us on the “hike”,… Continue reading
I grew up in church. I went every Sunday. My grandparents took me. My sister was baptized before I was. When I was 9 I followed in her footsteps and was baptized. Looking back, I don’t know that I really understood what the decision to do that made. I mean, I’m sure that I understood… Continue reading
Hello! Welcome! My name is Katy!
You can find me drinking coffee until it’s time for wine. Currently have 5 tattoos, but plans for more are in the works.
I’m a birthmom over 8 years post placement. I’ve been in a birthmom support group since November 2018, and will be leading my own come May 2023.
On Sunday mornings you can usually find me in the nursery or on the production team at church.
Various times throughout the year, you can find me staying with someone’s dog(s) while they’re away on a trip – so don’t be surprised if there are stories or pictures every so often.
