I am launching a new segment on my Organize 365 Podcast called Organizing Life's Stages and Unexpected Events.

Today's episode is a little longer as I explain how this series came to be and share with you our story about infertility and adoption.

My dream is that this series would become a dynamic resource for people to use when their lives get thrown into this kind of chaos.

It has been 14 years since I was in the thick of my infertility and adoption season of life. So much has changed! Please leave any resources you have found to be helpful in the comments and I will update this post!


Here are some resources for you if you are experiencing infertility:

Creating a Family is a great resource podcast and links to MANY infertility blogs.

Stirrup Queens has a great treatment spreadsheet for you to use to track your infertility treatments.


Here are some resources for you if you are pursuing adoption:

Should you adopt

Should You Adopt is the book I lend out to my friends who are thinking adoption might be right for them. There are lots of great questions and perspectives in this book.

Tell Me Again About the Night I Was Born and A Blessing From Above are the 2 books we read our children over and over about their adoptions.


And please, please, PLEASE check to see if your child will qualify for the Title IV E adoption subsidy and adoption tax credits.

 Again - Please leave any resources you have found to be helpful in the comments, and I will update this post!
