Why I Started Are Those Your Kids
When I became a mother, I searched for resources about raising biracial/multicultural children and found very little. And when I say little, I mean a minuscule amount. So, I decided to be the resource that I was looking for in hopes of helping moms like myself.
Even if you don’t have biracial/multicultural children, you can still relate to my experiences as a mother. I’ve published a few articles on the Huffington Post and my family was even featured on Inside Edition!
So, I decided to be that resource for other moms.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed some days and forget why I wanted to become a mother in the first place.
No one is supposed to say that, but it’s how we all feel.
It’s an amazing journey that comes with no shortage of challenges. Throw in an interracial marriage, and that can present its own set of challenges.
By day I am an elementary school counselor, and by evening I’m a blogger, mom, & farmer’s wife.
I was raised on an Air Force Base by Jamaican parents (I like to call myself Jamerican) and raised in the south. Every now and then southern jargon may slip into my writing (ya’ll).
Even though I was raised in South Carolina & now reside in south Georgia, I have a different perspective on race and culture due to my military background. Looking at my group of friends growing up was like looking at the colors of the rainbow.
My husband and I have been married for 11 years, and we dated for 3. He was born and raised in south Georgia but traveled the world with his parents as a child.
We live on a farm & enjoy raising our own chickens, ducks, goats, geese & cows.
I have two daughters ages 9 & 7 and my son is 3.
All 3 of my children have different textures of curly hair. Because of the challenges I faced finding products that worked for both types of hair, I love to share product reviews on the blog!
I’m a bit of a product junkie, so even when I find a product that works, I’m always on the hunt for another.
Join me on this journey I call life as a mother. When you subscribe to my blog, every week you’ll hear how I challenge my negative and positive experiences & give advice to other multiracial/multicultural families on how to handle it all.
I have a Multiracial Motherhood Facebook group of 4,000+ mothers who are sharing their trials and celebrations in multiracial motherhood. It’s a wonderfully positive community of mothers who are seeking community and conversation. In the group, you will find live videos, product & book recommendations and so much more! Click here to join.
Oh, and did I mention that I also have naturally curly hair? That’s another journey in itself! I’ll be giving you curly hair care tips & even recommending some of our favorite products. Every now and again I even post a giveaway!
Even though my focus is on resources for multiracial families, I am also passionate about education, diversity, farm life, and motherhood. My blog is filled with life experiences for everyone-not just the mom raising biracial kids.
