Maybe when she comes home, you can name her Kitty. Ha, ha! 🙂
That’s unbelievably cute. A sister! He’s up for the challenge.
I just remembered something today, which is, the very first time I met you, Z. was a newborn in a sling (at T.’s house). And there you were, with this Korean baby in a sling, and I thought, “Oh COOL, she adopted from Korea!”
Only an hour later when you were talking about postpartum or nursing or something, did I deduce that your husband is Korean.
So in my mind, you’ve been an adoptive mother for a long time!
Kitty Kim! That’s it! The perfect name! ha ha….
and Sh.M., I remember meeting you that day too! How cute about the adoption from Korea. Many people have made that their first assumption for our current adoption plans 🙂 it’s funny! For a long time G new you as the neighbor who loves Koreans… ha!
Artist & Writer
Diablo Valley Region,
San Francisco Bay Area
Welcome to this blog where I store all things related to my recent art + writing work.
I started the summer wanting to merge my interest in studying U.S. history, sociopolitical structures, and how people treat each other, into an art + writing project of some sort.
I wasn’t certain what form it would take.
I ended up with a picture book story about a girl who has her own ideas about what she wants, how she wants it, and what makes her get up & go!
Summer & Fall 2019:
and I’m almost ready to start sending this work into the world!
