This week's Mom of the Week is... (4/30-5/6)



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 SarahSuzyQ, 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. :)

How long have you been a foster parent? Are you open to more placements?

Well... I have done most of my hiking here in the White Mountains in New England. So two of my favorite White Mountain hikes are the Baldface loop (North and South Baldface) in the Fryeburg, ME area and then Carter Dome in the Bartlett, NH area.

I would like to do more hiking out west, especially in Glacier National Park. I'm hoping we can do some of those vacations when my son gets a little older. :)

We are coming up on two years, and we've had one other child in addition to our son. That was a toddler boy who successfully and happily reunified with his family, and we stay in touch with them occasionally.

It's funny you ask about other placements... DH and I were just discussing that in the car this weekend. Mixed feelings on both of our parts, so I'm not sure what we'll do. We've talked a lot about doing a straight adoption of an older waiting child, and then perhaps taking a few years off to work with our kid(s) before reopening our home. But that's a loose plan, I feel really uncertain what we'll end up doing!

Oops, I missed this one! :)

Also, it's impossible to pick just one book or author!!! Come on, Claire! :)

Authors: Fannie Flagg, Gregory Maguire, Suzanne Collins, Isabel Allende. Books are too many to name! I really loved The Hunger Games, Fried Green Tomatoes, Wicked, the Harry Potter books (not so much the movies)... I'm sure I'll think of more!

 do you have borther and sisters? did you prank each other if so, what was the best prank?

I do, I have one brother who is 2 years younger. For whatever reason, we didn't really prank each other... I do love a good prank, but I guess it never occurred to me to pull one on him!

I'm guessing this question is prompted by some good stories from your own childhood... :-)
