This blog is chicken scratches really. It's my feeble attempt at writing about life, namely, what's left over from parenting four daughters. It's about Down syndrome and international adoption, field trip permission slips and Moyamoya disease. It's about God being in the driver seat and me constantly attempting to crash up my car. It's about life, both secular and sacred; writing and taking baths and board games and date nights; learning how to knit and feeling guilty that I haven't taught the girls anything about home economics.
I am also currently working on a memoir called KRASATA, which means BEAUTY in Russian. The book spans three years of my life from Polly's birth in the Former Soviet Union up until her stroke and diagnosis of Moyamoya in 2009.
