Meet Merrisa

Adoptive-Family-Mom-BlogMy husband and I became first-time parents in 2015, adopting a precious baby girl. After years of struggling with infertility, including multiple failed IVF attempts and miscarriages, we plunged into the adoption process and never looked back. Not long after being officially approved for the domestic infant adoption program at a local agency, we were notified that a birth mom had chosen us to be parents for a baby due two weeks later (two weeks!). Deciding to make her debut a week early, she gave us even less time to prepare.

It has been a most glorious ride ever since! But in the hustle and bustle of becoming a mom so quickly, I didn’t feel like there was an abundance of resources available for moms in my situation, so as a professional writer, it seemed natural to start a blog and share what I’ve learned. I hope no matter where you are in your parenthood journey that you can take some knowledge away from my experience!
