About Me

This blog is about me and my voyage to becoming a mummy. Ironically called “mummy in the baking” as together with my passion and obsession for all things cake related, I will never be able to have my own "bun in the oven." Years of fertility treatment have taken their toll and I now find myself on a new..eek, i hate this word...journey! The crazy train to adoption. I hope you will join me while I bake my way to becoming a mummy. I want this blog to be a source of information as well as a comforter. I hope it will inspire and help anyone who is considering adoption or who has in fact already bought their ticket for this..here I go again...journey. Cake makes me happy and I hope you will enjoy sharing my love of it. I want it to help lift your spirits and hearts through what can only be described as 'the trials and tribulations of the adoption process.' Along with my desire to be a family, I love my dogs, have an unhealthy love of sausages and chenin blanc, adore my land rover uber-nerd of a husband and continiously dream of balmy summer evenings. Baking in progress…..

Finally get a reply....
So three weeks later, I get a reply. It doesn't say much.....just an acknowledgement... but this is enough for me. It gives me butterflies. It says that a social worker will call me shortly to arrange a visit. I call my LRUN, we are beaming. It finally feels like we are getting somewhere.
Back at home, my Amazon wish list is spiralling out of control. I must be a  real dream target for any marketing analyst. There are books on adoption for dummies, toddler adoption, trauma, bonding, attachment issues and theraplay...all mixed in with a good helping of Peggy Porschen's romantic cakes, the Hummingbird Bakery and Cakes to Fall In Love With. I have a lot of reading to do.
