Hi! Welcome to Expat Adoptee Mommy!
What’s this blog about? …
Specifically: emerging from foggy thinking, including-but-n0t-limited-to: “adoption fog,” hypocrisy, stereotypes and preconceived notions.
Adoption. Critical thinking about the institution of adoption. Pop psychology. Analysis, interviews with the pros (i.e. therapists who are slightly less crazy than I am. I’m kidding.), personal stories. The Meaning of Life. Kicking one’s day in the butt, as well as taking names. In a totally good, peaceful, open-minded way, of course.
… and what exactly is an expat adoptee mommy?
Just a little bit about where I live:
- Serbia is a small, developing country in Eastern Europe, not to be confused with Siberia.
- Serbia is a part of the former Yugoslavia, which broke apart in the 1990s. (Attn: various U.S. Post Offices – Serbia is now a country, and that country is not Serbia and Montenegro)
Here’s my “official” picture:
Here’s a little more about me from my official bio. (Whatever that means.)
Laura Dennis was born in New Jersey and raised in Maryland, but she learned how to be a (sane) person in California, where she lost her mind and found it again in 2001. A professionally trained dancer, Laura gave up aches and pains and bloody feet in 2004 to become a stylish, sales director for a biotech startup. Then with two children under the age of three, in 2010 she and her husband sought to simplify their lifestyle and escaped to his hometown, Belgrade. While the children learned Serbian in their cozy preschool, Laura recovered from sleep deprivation and wrote Adopted Reality. Now available on Amazon.
