Xavi and I have the honor of being featured in Issue 20 of Zooey Magazine. When I was asked by the editor, the lovely Lucia Tran, if I would be interested in writing a piece on our adoption journey, I jumped at the chance. As you can tell from my previous post about Xavi's adoption, I believe in banishing the myths and praising the glory of adoption, while also recognizing the loss and heartache. Just the same as my previous post, it was a tough article to write, especially since it was to be a narrative and not an interview. I probably rambled on a bit too much, but I'm still happy with the outcome as it was straight from the heart. Xavi and I also had an amazing time during our photo shoot with the incredibly talented, Wing Ta of Canary Grey. Xavi took a major shine to her and gave her some of his best smiles. I was an awkward, nervous mess, but Wing quickly put me at ease. Anyways, be sure to check your local newsstand or order a copy online!!! And in the meantime enjoy these outtake photos of me and my boo in his nursery, which even after all this time isn't fully finished. ;)
