You Say Toe-May-Toe, I Say Toe-Ma-Toe

Wishcasting Wednesday: What hunger do you wish to feed?

Wishcasting Wednesday beckons once more, asking tempting little questions of the big desires of my heart. Madame Ridler riddles those who would dare to dream with tantalizing teasers and invites us to go inside and see what we might find.

This week she asks…What hunger do you wish to feed? I am digging in deep for this one, friends. Going into the woods where it is dark and scary, but where hope whispers from the mist that rises out of its center to comfort my anxiety.

You see, I stand on a ledge between two things that line up with matching energies for me. One is of the past, and one, of the future. And they both have to do with adoption.

When I was a baby, my birth mother gifted me with my forever family. My mom and dad made a life for me that has made me the person I am today. May I say, good job, folks! And as pleased as I am about the quality of my life, I have always HUNGERED to know my roots. I have always HUNGERED to look into another’s face and see my own.

On the other side is the part of me who HUNGERS to be a mother. I have spent time in the past actively pursuing this desire, but have not yet been blessed with a child. There have been times when that was an ache in my soul. But today, the ache has healed. And yet, the HUNGER is still there. As this new year turned, I felt the desire rise up in me again. It is in the fore front of my mind once more. And until tonight, I haven’t looked at it head on.

So these TWIN HUNGERS send me reaching out to the mother of my past and to the child of my future. I don’t image this will be settled anytime soon, but tonight, I claim it. Loud and clear. I AM SEARCHING for my PACK! Continue reading

Where Dreams Come True

I recently got my own copy of Wonder. It feels special when I hold it because it is easy to understand the attention to detail that went into its making. And although it is significant to have a book made by such a dear member of the family and someone I consider a friend, this book could easily become an heirloom for anyone’s family. I immediately came home and placed mine next to my collection of classics. Continue reading
