Welcome Dina!!! So glad you are here and congratulations on your little one, what a blessing.
arizona umi- lovin that traditional description of yourself! I am right behind you, somehow though I love having my feet on the ground and my head in the clouds. Trying to keep it all balanced and heart centered!
And how did all these west africans end up in arizona?
How is NY Mama Amina? I didnt realize your husband was yoruba, you should be able to find a lot of community there. Hope you are settling in.
Liquesce- you summed it up with the "gotta smile", that gave me a good laugh!
I am assuming that a lot of you mommas would also join in on the multi-cultural sub-forum that should be coming soon to MDC.
Any of you wanting to move back home or to DP homeland at some point on the future?
I would love to move back to Senegal with DH and live with his family. I have major issues and anxiety about raising my DS here in the states, especially considering that he is of mixed roots. I sum it up as my "inside/outside" battle. Here he has a local Health food store, (sorta clean water), access to good medical care, choices with education, etc.....all outside things...
In Senegal he has strong family ties, values, beliefs, support, all the most important internal makings of a good, strong, loving person...am i making sense? Anyone else who can relate or at least throw some perspective my way?

Peace and blessings
Also, has anyone read any of the poetry of the female sufi Rabia?
