But the cool thing about this process of adoption and attachment is that I no longer think of myself as an 'adoptive mom,' I'm just mom! And as the kids are getting older it somehow seems like I should let them tell their own stories, if they choose.
Of course I'll NEVER stop being mom (thank goodness), but as the kids get older, I have more time to focus on other passions of my heart, like my Designing For Hope jewelry business and Swaziland.
I don't know what that will look like over time, but it just seems appropriate to start a new blog to chronicle a new journey. I admit, I'm kind of sad at the thought of not posting to this blog again (weird the things I get attached to) but I know in my heart that this is the right thing. If you'd like to keep following, you can find me at
So thank you for being my 'cyber' friend these last few years... I hope you'll join me on the next part of this journey! Many blessings to you!!
