I am a mom to 5 kids, all who joined our family through adoption. Parenting is hard, parenting 5 little lives that came to us with experiences already imprinted on them offers up many more challenges. Our family is a rainbow of faces and cultures: African American, French-PuertoRican, Guatemalan and I am from Southern California. We consider ourselves “Southern-Guata-Cali-Franch-a-Rican”
Our children have taught me so much about myself. I am a fierce advocate of fostercare and adoption. As a trans-racial adoptive mom, my heart now walks around in brown and black skin. I am a fierce activist for human rights and racial equality.
