I'm a married full time working mom of two toddler boys.
Married for six years, Beloved and I built our family through adoption in 2003. We met our oldest son in South Africa when he was five months old. And the mayhem began! We never imagined our second son would arrive one year to the day after our first.
We have a barely-open relationship with Sparkle's birthmom in South Africa, and we're feeling our way with a semi-open relationship with Pumpkin's birthmom in the US.
Sometimes I can't believe this is my life.
It takes a little effort to stand back from the mayhem of work and family life. But when I do the moments of magic are so brilliant... or just so silly...
