Hi friends! To those who are new to my blog, welcome! If you’ve been following me elsewhere for a while, I’m sure there’s a ton about my life you already know, but I like to take some time every now and again to (re)introduce myself. This time, I’m going to share 3 things that hardly anyone knows (yes, I still have a few secrets!): 1. I’m terribly proficient at French (a test I took online recently graded me just below fluent…which means that to French speakers my French is more terrible than proficient). I love reading graphic novels and comics in French and listening to podcasts in French to brush up! 2. I am reading at any given time up to eight books! It’s like I have different ones to suit my moods! 3. I have traveled to over 35 different countries and still don’t know how to drive a stick shift! What can I say? I am grateful that there are always opportunities to learn!
The gist…the shortest explanation of how I got to where I am today with creating this space!
I do what I do because I want to new parents to have an easeful introduction to their children that they are donor conceived…whenever they decide that time is appropriate to reveal. My books are meant to be a small part of the gradual normalization process. All families are built differently. I have to say, it’s pretty powerful! When people ask WHY I pursued authoring children’s books on this topic, I simply respond that making someone’s family building experience easier in any way is all the reason I need! Then I realized that I realized I wanted to share more about my own journey and curate any extra sources of inspiration that may be of help to others out there!
Wondering if this space is for you? It’s your lucky day, because I’m about to set the record straight right now! You belong here if you’re pivoting any aspect of your life right now, if you are in any facet of family building, or if you’re in need of the inspiration to do so! Did that clear anything up? No matter what, I’m so happy you’re here!
