This week's Mom of the Week is... (4/16-4/22)



To get started...

What is your name?

How many kids do you have, and what are their ages?

If you're a member of the adoption "triad", what role are you? (Amom, bmom, or adoptee?)

If not, what has been your experience with adoption?

Do you have any pets?

What are your hobbies?


Any group member can add to this post by asking your questions for adopted3, and she will be stopping by to answer them throughout the week. This is our chance to get to know another group member just a little bit better. :)

 All three at different times but my oldest has reactive attachment disorder which adds an extra layer of fun!

Happiness isn't a destination you can reach, it's your attitude on the journey.

How old were your kids when they first came to you? Was it a foster placement or straight adoption?

 Lexi turned 5 the week they moved in, Jorge was 3 and Keegan was 2.  We fostered for a year but intended to adopt them from the start.

 It is a teen paranormal with a strong female lead (nothing like Twilight)... I have been working on it for about a year now but haven't had much time to put into it.
