Love, Sports and Basketball

I grew up an athlete. I think I pretty much played every sport I have ever wanted to play. In Grade School I played football (soccer) and softball. I loved horses and my parents enrolled me in riding school and was an equestrian for a while. I enjoyed the water and loved to swim, in Grade 7 I made it to our varsity swimming team. I also joined our volleyball varsity team for about 2 years. Swimming was the sport I loved so I did that until about 1st year college. In college, I joined the Badminton team and competed in our school intramurals for almost all the sports. I was an athlete.

Trying To Have A Baby

Mark and I have been married for a little over 4 years. We've been actively TTC (Trying To Conceive) for the past year and a half.

It has been a pretty frustrating journey. I hate either taking the pregnancy test and receiving the BFN (Big Fat Negative) or getting my period, just when I thought it wouldn't visit me. It hurts a lot. It hurts when you get those 2 lines and then realize a month later that it was not  meant to happen. 


I have to admit, the blog I wrote about being adopted reached unbelievable numbers. I have gotten countless of messages and emails thanking me for what I wrote. I could not believe that what I wrote, from my heart, touched so many people.

TV Show Bullying Adopted Children

After just writing a blog post on adoption, I chanced upon a TV show on ABS CBN called Hawak Kamay and what the "3 mean girls" in the movie were saying to this other girl was exactly what I was talking about. "Pinamigay siya ng mommy niya. Hindi siya mahal ng mommy niya." (Her mom gave her away. Her mom doesn't love her) And other insults about being adopted were being said.

I grew in her heart, not in her tummy

I am adopted. Yes, shocking as it may be, I am. I look exactly like my mom and sometimes like my dad so people sometimes don’t believe that I am.
