I first heard of Sarah Harris when I read her contribution at Scary Mommy . It was hysterical and oh so true! I was thrilled to find out that she lived in my community and I hopped onto her blog tour to help discover a little about my own writing process. She has three adorable kiddos and uses her writing as a “memory keeper” and her “me time”. And she’s pretty darn fabulous at it. One of my favorite things is her “lesson learned” at the end of most of her entries. Heaven knows that we can all use some of those! You can find her at:
For better or worse, here is the part about my writing process…
Honestly, most days I’m working on keeping my kids clothed and fed! I have a preference for getting them where they need to go and picking them up generally on time, but beggars can’t be choosers! In between all of that drama, I’ve been working on getting my blog up to date. Since I’m a failure in the hands-on photo album department, my blog is as close as I’ll probably get to a visual record of our lives. Unfortunately it’s waaaayyyy behind! So it seems that I need to quit living life long enough to catch up on all of the things that I haven’t blogged about yet. So, yeah. I think for now I’ll focus on keeping my kids clothed and fed.
Theresa was introduced to me by a mutual friend when we got Cadence’s referral. Theresa and her husband brought their daughter home from China just a year earlier and she also had an unrepaired cleft lip/palate. We communicated through some emails and then followed each other on Facebook and through blogs as we discovered that Cadence and her daughter Mali were freakishly alike in so many ways! Even our extended families are connected enough that we all vacation together in the summer. Theresa’s blog is a wonderful journal to her daughter Mali that she religiously writes every week. She shares their experiences together and the highs and lows of both motherhood and adoption.
