Adoption Talk Topics #1: Introductions

January 12, 2017

  I'm going to try to keep up with the Adoption Talk Link Up this year and the first topic of the year is Introductions.  I've done a few of those here on the blog (how we got to the Marshall Islands, why we chose adoption, and 99 things about me) but my life has changed quite a bit since those were written.
(There is something photo-worthy about a popcorn bucket bigger than your head...)

  I'm still married to D and we still have four kids- Sky, Fire, Water, and Earth  - all home through open adoption.  For a long time, our life was defined by the island we lived on (Kwajalein, in the Marshall Islands) but all that changed about a year ago when D took a job near Tucson and we moved back to America.  I became a stay-at-home-mom, taking care of our two youngest during the day.
  I still enjoy to cooking, and while I don't get to read as much as I used to, I love finding new and fun things for our family to do around Tucson.  We still travel (to Thailand last year, and  we are planning a trip to Mexico) but most of our day to day life is the same as so many other American families.
   It was lovely to "meet" you and I hope to see you here again soon!
