It’s been a while since we ‘met’ any new bloggers here on The Adoption Social so we were thrilled when Single Adopter got in touch. If you’d like to feature here, do drop us a line so we can send you our set list of questions…
Quick 5 – In my life at the moment…
Book – Black by Design by Pauline Black
Music – Loving Sam Smith & John Legend (thanks @PedallingSolo for the recommendation)
TV programme – Just finished Blacklist now catching up on The Killing; Grey’s Anatomy is also a fave (McSteamy for those wondering J)
Food – Thai, Seabass, Halloumi & a weakness for chocolate
Pastime – getting back into running after a neck op, Pilates, Malbec, blogging, volunteering & preparing for Panel
Why did you start blogging about adoption?
To share my story: to hopefully inspire other prospective (single) adopters & for me to look back on to see, hopefully one day, how far I’ve come on this bumpy journey.
Where do you get your blogging inspiration from?
From everyday occurrences, challenges & emotions
Who is your favourite adoption blogger?
I’ve got 3: @NickKing for everyday wit; @NadjaSmit for being thought provoking; & @Mumdrah for her honesty
Can I have both? Can’t beat an Earl Grey & but how I love a Hendricks
What do you think is your biggest source of support?
My family & my best friend, they’ve been & continue to be there every step of the way.
If you could take your children anywhere in the world to see something where would you go?
To see the animals in Africa in their natural habitat, OK it’s somewhere I’d love to go to too
What I hope I can give to my child/Children?
Security, love, laughter & inspiration, for them to become independent & happy in their own skin.
At the weekend I can mostly be found…
Drinking Earl Grey Tea, Skinny Latte’s & Red wine in no particular order (& definitely not at the same time); running around London Parks & the Thames; spending time with my nieces & friends.
