HMN Elsewhere

Yesterday The Next Family put up a guest post I wrote in response to this prompt: It would be great to have you write your story — being a cancer survivor and a mom (an adoptive mom), how it was for you, where you are now, how it’s changed for you…

It’s funny how framing a situation differently, asking a slightly different question, can elicit a totally new and different response. You can read the post here.

And check out The Next Family while you’re there – they’ve got interesting content from urbanite families, adoptive families, in vitro parents, interracial families, same sex parents, and single parents.

Also, I’d like to take this opportunity to do a little more shameless promotion. Hysterical Mommy Network has been nominated for the Parenting Blog section of the Best of Western Washington contest. I’m just so tickled about the whole thing. It makes me giggle. If you’d be so kind… If you haven’t already… Would you vote here, please? That color you’re wearing looks so nice on you. It matches your eyes and, my goodness, those lashes… You look particularly lovely today.

Love you all! XOXO

    I hope to see you continue to write for thenextfamily. Your cancer survivor story is fantastic and inspirational for sure (and your writing about it very powerful), but I think you also have a lot to contribute in sharing your experiences as an adoptive parent… especially the complex concerns of an interracial adoption. I realize your life is not all about adoption or all about interacial parenting, but I do think you have a wonderful way of illuminating it for those of us that don’t have that experience. And you so frequently write about parenting in a way that we can all relate to. I hope we’ll be seeing more guest posts from you on
