Hello! It's nice to meet you!
My name is Christine, I am 32, and am excited to be expecting my second biological baby, due the end of July. My husband, Severin and I have been married a year-and-a-half. I have a 13 year-old son, Zachary that I had when I was 19. I don't recommend having children at such a young age, but I'm quite delighted with the young man he is. We breastfed until he self-weaned at 4.5, went to a cooperative preschool where I enjoyed frequent parent education and support.
My husband has two step-daughters, ages (almost) 13 (L) and 21 (S) (initials for privacy). He dated their mother from the time the youngest was 2, until she was 6, and she only knows him as "Dad." That he has been giving his love, energy, and resources to children from honor, instead of obligation, truly inspires me. He is the most generous man on the planet.
For us, families are born of love, and this is quite a diverse, and sometimes challenging, adventure. And it's never boring!
I look forward to getting to know all of you over the next several months!
