I am the birth mother of an adopted little girl, she turned 6 this Mother's Day(May 8th). I am still pro-choice, but adoption was best for me...even if it's not for you. Feel free to ask me about it.
I plan on being a cloth diaper using, exclusively breastfeeding, diplomatic attachment parenting, baby wearing, song singing, home schooling, video game playing, internet addicted, tattooed stay at home mom. Will I succeed? Only time will tell.

Graduated college with an Associate Degree and a cumulative GPA of 3.89...planning on returning for my Bachelor of Social Work degree Fall of 2013. Once I have that, I will be taking lactation consultant course and getting certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. You need at least a Bachelor degree in a medical field to qualify. I chose Social Work as my background medical degree.
