Today meet the blogger questions is from Erin at No Bohn’s About It
Quick 5 – In my life at the moment….
Music: We’re pretty into music from musical theatre lately. The current favorite is definitely Matilda.
TV programme: I have a slightly embarrassing addiction to reality television. Lately my favorites are Dancing With The Stars and The Little Couple.
Food: Indian Food! And Sushi! Those are my two favorites. We make a pretty big effort to try lots of different cultural cuisine. Now I’m hungry.
Pass time: Seems like most of my pastimes these days involve the kiddos. We’re pretty big on biking, camping, and being outdoorsy. We also really like live theatre and going to see shows.
What is your biggest challenge as an adoptive parent?
Navigating the world as a transracial adoptive family. I feel like many adoptive families just kind of fit it, but ours sticks out. Everywhere we go it’s pretty obvious that we are an adoptive family.
What do you wish you had known before you adopted your children?
I wish I had known that love isn’t enough. There is so much more to being an adoptive parent then just love. You need love AND knowledge.
Why did you start blogging about adoption?
I started blogging as an outlet for my feelings. I didn’t have many people in real life in similar situations. Through blogging and reading the blogs of others I have learned so much and become a better parent.
Where do you get your blogging inspiration from?
From my children of course! They are hilarious and insightful. They crack me up daily and always give me something to think and talk about.
What made you choose the blogging platform i.e blogger/wordpress that you did?
I use wordpress. I didn’t know much about blogging and just randomly googled “wordpress or blogger” the first article that came up suggested wordpress so I went with that. Never gave it another thought.
Tea! Every morning before I wake my children up for the day I drink a tea and relax with 10 peaceful minutes to myself.
