Hi. I’m Sarah. I’m a single mom by choice who adopted from foster care and ended up with the world’s greatest kids. My son was born with the knowledge of the universe and my daughter was born a unicorn. I’m a Myers-Briggs ENFP, a DiSC Profile D/I, and an Enneagram 8. I like making sentences with words and taking pictures. I intend to do both of those things here.
I’ve spewed words onto the internet in various places for the past 20 years of my life*, though they’ve never been put into a distinct, cohesive blog. I’ve thought on occasion that it’s time to change that, made a blog, failed to update it and let it lie dormant only to think “HEY I SHOULD BLOG” again a couple years later, repeat ad nauseum.
I have a lot of feelings on parenthood and the various niches of parenthood into which I fit — adoption! Foster care! Special needs sort of but not really but actually yes! Sensory issues, mostly mine! Wannabe homeschoolers with a chronic case of Stickittodamaneosis!
Sometimes I find words for those feelings and throw them into the void of the internet because somewhere out there someone else has those feelings too. At least, that’s what I’m choosing to believe. I know that I appreciate all the people who have put words to feelings I had when I wasn’t able to name them, so maybe I can name some things for someone else. Maybe I can throw some words into sentences in such a way that someone else says, “Yes! That is the thing that I was trying to find the words to describe!”
I don’t think I’m the only one. And if I am, that’s cool. But I don’t think I am.
*It may be more than 20 years because there was a period of time when I was nine years old and “the internet” meant “Prodigy” and I would play multiple choice Baby-sitters Club games and email my uncle, the only other person I knew that had an email address.
