My name is Camille. I’m a thirty year old Capricorn destined to be a mom. I have a quirky sense of humor and I adore baking, reading, and learning new things. I have a sincere love of water and find my solace in the waves of the ocean. I also happen to have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I’ve been around children my entire life. I’ve been the babysitter, the nanny, the teacher, the aunt, and the godmother. I’m ready to be the mom.
Eight Nine years ago, I met and fell in love with my soul mate, Jade.
Jade is a forty something year old fiery Gemini ball of energy, youth, and positivity. She is the best possible friend a person could have. Jade loves traveling (particularly the beach), music, and spending time with those whom she is closest. Since she was a young child, Jade has found herself surrounded by children.
Our relationship is built on a solid foundation of friendship. I never intended to spend my life with her, but here I am today. I’m engaged to the person I love. She and I don’t have a perfect life. We don’t have millions in the bank, but, we are blessed beyond belief. We have love. A lot of love. We have understanding. We have mutual respect. Jade and I have built a family in our suburban home with our two dogs. There is only one thing missing…
I am destined to be a mom.
Despite the fact that Jade and I are a lesbian couple living in the middle of the Bible Belt, we are ready to add a child to our family. Families like ours are few and far between but we are ready to take this step.
This blog is intended to be a safe space where I can share my ups and downs. It is a space where I can be raw and honest. This journey to motherhood isn’t going to be a direct route. It isn’t always going to be sunny days and tulips. I invite you to share this journey with me as we try to make our family a little bit bigger.
Live in the Sunshine,
