We’ve got a great blog today, “I Am Not the Babysitter“… Meet Jamie Lynne Grumet of Los Angeles.
Hi! I’m Jamie. I am a Los Angeles homeschooling mommy chronically mistaken for the babysitter of my children. Our oldest son was adopted from Ethiopia one year ago. Our youngest is biological, born two months premature as a result of me developing HELLP Syndrome in my pregnancy.
My goals for this blog:
- Explain the struggles and joys of a transcultural/transracial family.
- Bring awareness to adoptive breastfeeding and sustained breastfeeding.
- Encourage other mothers to be very present and active in the lives of these true blessings from God, while at the same time not letting their lives be defined by their children.
Now roll call below with a quick, short comment and then head over to her place and shower in comment love.
