Calling all mothers for a book I am writing about raising biracial and multiracial children in the United States. Please submit your name and email address in the top right-hand corner of Honeysmoke to participate in a survey I will conduct early in 2011.
There is no doubt every mother knows her life will change forever when she brings home a child. Simone and Nadia have changed my life in ways I could not have imagined. When people started asking questions about whether Simone was my child, I did the only thing I knew how to do. I wrote, reflected and wrote some more. Those essays found their way into publications and onto this blog. Eventually they will be published as a book, a book that has become a research project without the fancy letters that often come with such work.
Join me as I continue this journey. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
