Thank you to everyone who read and shared our latest blog post!

It was shocking to me to see just how many people care about our family. Last time I looked at it, our post had been shared over 50 times on Facebook alone. Incredibly humbling to say the least.

Last time we adopted we connected with a birth family the very same day we blogged about it.

This time? No match yet but we’re still hopeful and praying.

I didn’t think the same exact situation would happen again because no two adoption stories are ever the same! Our second adoption might take a bit longer than last time…or even a quite a while longer than last time.

Help Us Find #BabyTex2!

May 27, 2016

Recently I posted about how insanely hectic life has been – how we’re in the process of launching an online business, doing lots of lifestyle changes, periodically helping launch the FOCUS Summer Project in Estes Park, CO and gearing up for two surgeries in June.

Naturally, God would choose this moment to prompt us to begin the search for #BabyTex2 since he’s funny like that.

When God Ripped My Band-Aid Off

May 16, 2016

It’s no secret that we’ve experienced infertility for over four and a half years.

It’s also no secret that infertility led me to a dark, desperate, and depressed place. I can see it in certain blog posts or even journal entries. (sorry no link to those!) 😉

I was oh so very wounded and emotionally drowning.

But in time that pain started to evaporate.

Jonathan and I began communicating in healthier ways. We launched into the adoption process. We took a break from medical treatment. I induced lactation so I could breastfeed. And finally Josephine Rose Teixeira came into our lives.

What We’ve Learned After Almost Five Years of Infertility

April 25, 2016

National Infertility Awareness Week is upon us and we’re joining the conversation here at True Good and Beautiful.

Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples at some point during their child-bearing years. While it’s the minority of couples, most people have a friend or family member who’s battled this painful disease.

Jonathan and I have been trying to conceive (TTC) for 4.5 years and we’ve learned a whole lot in that time. Struggling with infertility has hands down been the hardest battle in our marriage. As you might guess, it has the ability to bring couples closer together or tear them apart.

How We Fumbled Through Our First Week In Business

April 12, 2016

I mentioned a few blog posts back, that Jonathan and I are launching an online business. 

Or rather…businesses.

We can’t let the cat our of the bag on ALL our future ideas but this past week we launched marketing for our first idea.

The Infertility Survival Guide. 

What is that exactly?

It’s not released (yet!!) but will consist of an online package custom-designed for couples facing infertility. It exists to inform, support, caution, encourage, and inspire.

Infertility has a way of weaving itself into every day. It’s not an understatement to say that infertility has the potential to wreck marriages, finances, health, psychological well-being, friendships, work, and relationship with God. Our goal is to help couples experience infertility without it destroying their life.
