When I look about fifteen and have children of two different races in tow, it is easy to see why most people assume I’m not the mother of the children with me. Especially when everyone in this area uses nannies.

This blog is about  my experiences as young, stay-at-home-mom, living in Beverly Hills, with a husband, a biological son, and a son adopted from Ethiopia.

Join the weirdness of my life.

    Hi –
    I was looking for blogs about Ethiopian adoption because my husband and I just got matched to brothers, ages 1 month and 3 1/2 years old. We also went through WACAP, and we received the call about the referal on June 18th, a few days after we were told we would have to wait until the fall.
    Do you have your court date yet?
    We don’t have any other children, so I’m a bit crazed trying to figure out how to care for a toddler and a baby (we always wanted siblings, but we were told that it could take up to 2 years — we got our referal 6 months after we finished our paperwork and Visa application) . Thanks for your latest post on double strollers. I wasn’t sure what was needed for a 3 1/2 year old.
    Best of luck with your adoption. Maybe we will be in the same group in July.
    Take care

      Thanks Alex,

      My husband is traveling both times ( I am going to try and come for the embassy trip, but my 2-year-old is still breastfeeding and I’m debating whether or not that is a good idea)- It sounds like you guys may be traveling together for both!

      We don’t have a court date yet! I hope we get one soon. We overnighted the referral acceptance back and they received it on the 22nd or something like that….so Hopefully we should hear something back soon.

      Since we only have our son I am a little nervous about having two, too! I think it is normal.

      keep in touch and let me know when you’re traveling!
