About New Pyjamas


Welcome to New Pyjamas!

This is my journey of Adoption. I have always wanted to be a Mum and thought it would be through the traditional way and order - you know, find a guy, get married, have children, adopt a few more and live happily ever after. Well, that never happened quite in that order. It has been a long and bumpy journey, with all its' twists and turns. I have survived the tale and here I am. Not the fairy tale I imagined. There have been lots of dragons along the way. Some friendlier than others, it has to be said.

I, was adopted as a baby - perhaps against the odds - as a premature baby to a Single Mum, who gave me up for adoption as her choice. I have always known that I was adopted and always thought that I would adopt too. However, this journey  to adopt has been a very different order to the fairytale I wrote. I did marry but it ended devastatingly, at the time we had always said we would start a family. I have since remained single, more perhaps through circumstance than choice. 

Here I am, blogging at New Pyjamas. Adoption full circle. New Mummy, as an Older Single Mum to a lively, and somewhat traumatised from her past, delightful and gorgeous little girl. She asked for New Pyjamas from her New Mummy,which was what I gave her when we first met. Here at New Pyjamas, she is known as PJ. I am therefore her New Pyjama Mummy. I am often referred to by her as her New Mummy. We now live together as a family with our long suffering cat, who we can call Smudge. Now, he has a tail or two to share!

Thanks for stopping by and you are welcome to join us in our journey.
It's a bumpy ride!

  1. Thank you for visiting my blog, much appreciated xx I loved reading your journey. My older brother was adopted as a baby and found us 4 years ago, I was told about him when I was 11 years old and from then on always wondered where he was in the world and whether he was ok. So now the missing piece of the jigsaw has been found and its lovely xxx your little girl is so blessed to have you, the understanding you will have is going to be so valuable to her xx much love xx
