I love blogging. It's weird, but I do. I like taking a little time each day (or every third day depending on whatever is going on in our lives) to write about what we're up to, share photos of the family, and document how we're changing and growing. I have been so thankful for this blog because I can go back months or years ago to relive memories and gasp at how small my kids appeared. I also love the people I've met through adopting from Ethiopia and blogging. (Pause for a tissue break.) Words just can't describe it. Blogging has been good to me.
But I'm ready to be more intentional in my family with certain things, and that's going to show up here. I'd like to start writing more about how I'm raising my children in our community while teaching them to be culturally sensitive. I want them to be aware of their own uniqueness and heritage and, moreover, be open to the uniqueness and heritage of those around them. Reading biographies aloud has started us on that journey, and it challenged me to look for other ways to bring the world to my kids.
I hope you stick with me. You'll still get plenty of family updates, and you'll also get my attempts at creative parenting. Really, how could you resist that?
