In September 2010, I shared that I was writing a memoir about adopting as a single woman of color. I am pleased to report that I have since gotten an agent and completed nine essays on various topics!

Like a maniac, I spent the last quarter writing, with a short jaunt to the Big Easy. I have also returned to my first love, fiction, and begun revamping a novel about a delusional singer. I’m excited about both prospects and expect to put in many, many, many hours at the page in the months to come. Meanwhile, my son is growing like a weed, cracking me up and keeping me proud.♡

Belated congrats to Viola Davis and her husband for their domestic adoption of a baby girl. They will be blessed beyond measure.
