I enjoy doing a lot of different activities. When people ask me what I like to do, I feel like my list is miles long! I like reading, writing, researching parenting things, planning for our dream vacation, decorating a house that I will probably never have, cooking (sometimes), playing outside, traveling, just hanging out with friends and family, and most of all, I love being a mom and wife. So much of who I am is wrapped up in my 2 kids and my husband. But, I wouldn’t change it for the world. They ARE my world.
I am currently training to become a doula. I love birth and all things baby and I love helping people. It’s quite a process and not something that happens in a matter of months, especially when you have two little ones. I will probably be training for at least a year, if not two. Included in the training is assisting in a certain number of births that meet pretty strict requirements, as well as writing a report after each one. I also have to attend a birth and breastfeeding class as an observer, plus the actual doula training class. I’m nervous about it all, but I am so excited about this adventure! For women who have gone through the process and decide to put a second baby up for adoption they might find the process smoother the second time around.
Well, there you have it. I think I hit the highlights without revealing too much. I’m a pretty down to earth person with a heart too big for my own good who wants world peace, or something along those lines. Thanks so much for this opportunity, Mom Elite!
