  • Can't take the Jersey out of the girl
    You Are 83% New Jersey!

    You are definitely Jersey. Well done, my friend. You are most likely from this great state, and you fit right in. Odds are, you love being Jersey!

    How New Jersey Are You?

I'm the mother of two gorgeous kids adopted from the New York City foster care system. The older girl, Toots, is seriously emotionally disturbed (post-traumatic stress disorder, related to a history of abuse) and has been hospitalized since fall 2006. She has recently moved to a residential treatment center, but we continue to work towards her permanent return home. Toots is a loving and sweet girl, in the periods when she doesn't hate us and isn't asking her social worker to find her a new family. She is going into 7th grade (Sept. '07). Noodles, the younger boy, receives special ed services for a learning disability, and is doing well overall. He's starting 5th grade, a martial artist, little wise guy, and soon-to-be viola student. I'm also wife to Lew, and employee of a agency serving people with mental retardation.

Does anybody out there know how to do this working mom thing? And if you do, could you please tell me? I could use the advice.


Reading, cooking, crocheting, and sleep. I remember sleep. It was nice.
