RE: “Keeping Up Appearances”

Hair care is one area I worry about during the adoption process. I was not blessed with the natural ability to style hair and have little patience for the eye roll and “Are you serious?!” looks when I’ve asked for help learning and then struggle through it. I dread having any child who is very particular about her hair style. I’m hoping my stylist friends will be willing to do some one-on-one classes with me!

Like the author, my daughter has 4C hair! I can totally relate.

RE: Parent-to-Parent: Like Birth Mother, Like Child

What talent or trait did my children inherit from birth family? My girls are both athletic and amazing dancers. I am terrible at both of these things, LOL, and I love watching them.

My four-year-old’s memory is crazy sharp, just like her birth mom’s.
