Time to Party Again

It's time again for the Ultimate Blog Party. Last year was my first year participating and I met some new friends, and got to expand my blog-reading addiction for the year.

If you're new here, I'm Susie and I write about raising my kids in this big world. I talk about having a multi-cultural family, how adoption has expanded our family, what it's like to be married outside my culture, and the many ways I try not to screw up my kids. Sometimes I talk about important stuff too, like my faith and what I'm learning about myself.

If you want to know more about me, this story about sums it up:

The other night we were praying before bed, and Simon said he wanted to pray, which is weird because he never wants to pray. He said, "Dear Lord, thank you for faith and help us to do more grace and help us to obey, especially Mommy because she keeps losing her patience. Amen."

I'm working on that. What are you working on?

PS - Prizes I would love are, of course, US39, the gift certificate to Hilton Garden Inn, or anything like that. Or, USC 8, the gift card to Amazon (or any of the many such gift cards). Or this sweet necklace (or anything like that)!

Hi Susie!
I too live in Ohio! I enjoyed your blog post and am excited to meet a family who embraced adoption. I myself am an adoptee and am so blessed by my parents, brother, and as of six years ago, my birth family.

Hope you'll consider stopping by Busy 'Lil Homemaker to say "hello"!

Oh, and I love that you say in your sidebar that you love your husband most, absolutely blessed me to see that. :)
