Today is my SITS Day! (It’s a big deal!)
What is SITS? Visit here for details.
So, here is a little about who I am and about this blog for all my fellow SITS sisters and new readers-
I’m the mother of two beautiful boys.
This picture pretty much sums up my life- I can’t tame my children or my hair:
but my kids love me:
I am a Christian.
I am a wife
I am an adoptive and biological mother.
I love to travel.
I am a hypochondriac.
I am a breastfeeding advocate (We practice- Nursing In Public, Child Led Weaning, and Adoptive Breastfeeding.) (I would love to feature any and all of you in my Clever Cleavage series. See one of my favorite guest posts here)
I home school my children.
We all love Disney.
I try to live as natural/organic of a lifestyle as possible (I also co-author a product review blog named Mommy Hates Chemicals)
I am my own person outside of my children. (This blog is geared more as a parenting blog, but I hope to convey the message that even though I love them as much as a human being could love another human, and I would give my life to spare theirs without a second thought, my children still do not define me as a person.)
I am on a mission. A group of brilliant friends and I have been tirelessly working on what we consider a labor of love- the Fayye Foundation (site should go live in the next two weeks so check back!) Our mission is to end the orphan crisis in Sidama, Ethiopia, through heath care and family assistance. While we believe that adoption is beautiful, we believe in family preservation above all else.
About my Kids:
Samuel is five and was adopted for Sidama, Ethiopia. November 6, 2010 was the day of his homecoming!
Aram is three and was born two months premature due to me developing HELLP Syndrome in my pregnancy. (We both made a full recovery from that traumatic birth)
About my Husband:
I have been married to this stud muffin for almost five years-
Although, up until a few weeks ago his beard looked more like this:
We live in Los Angeles where I am chronically mistaken for the babysitter of my children.
I hope you stick around!
