the monday snapshot – stephanie

This is the 2nd edition of The Monday Snapshot – an evolution of the MMM feature, meant to bring the PAIL blogroll to life by giving its members a chance to feature themselves and make new connections.

So, without further ado, meet Stephanie of Meandering Steph!


Cold Medicine: that has been the Theme for our week. We have all been sick which isn’t really convienant for our crazy schedule.

Fortunately we rarely have weeks like this! But now that we are all feeling better it’s back to work, school, flute lessons, NJROTC, homework, dog walking and all the other things that keep us going all week.


Stephanie dishes with us via the “5 Questions”:

1) How long have you been blogging and how did you get started?

I started blogging in 2010 but that only lasted about 2 weeks (okay maybe a bit longer) and then I deleted it. I didn’t think I was interesting enough to have a blog. Then last year I decided that maybe I am interesting and could offer something to the blog world so I started again. My blog is mostly about my photography and my boys. Snipets of married life, my adoption and relationship with my birthmom, cooking, my dog and just live in general.

2) Tell us a little about your ALI journey and your family (3-4 sentences).

I have two boys adopted through foster care. We just celebrated our 10th gotcha day. 4 years ago I got married so now we have a new gotcha day which is our anniversary.

3) What makes you unique in the blogging world? (e.g. special talent, rare diagnosis, life experience)?

Mostly my photography. It’s a passion of mine and I find I’m at my best when I’m out in the world looking through my lens. I don’t share alot about my sons on there but their story is unique and I would like to share more but I’m having trouble finding that balance between their story and what is okay to share with others.

4) One word to describe yourself:


5) What blog or website (IF or not) would you recommend to others? Why?

Definitely Kristen at Rage Against the Minivan. I have known Kristen for quite a while. We met when they were fostering their oldest son Jafta. Since then they have had two bio children and adopted another son from Haiti. She has great insight into just about everything. Her blog makes you laugh, think, cry – sometimes all in the same post.
