Hi there, and welcome to my little corner of the interwebs…

If you followed this blog years ago, welcome back! If you are new here, welcome! I’m glad you are here.

I am Joanna, and I write the words here at Crafty Nester… there are words about adoption, about parenting, and words about parenting kids with trauma. There are words about crafting and decorating, and words about medical issues and parenting through medical procedures and trauma. Mostly, there are words about life, because all of those things are our life!

We have four beautiful children, all of whom joined our family through adoption from China. We have a kid about to become a teenager, and a kid in diapers. We have a kid with autism, and a kid with a heart transplant. We have quite the range, and while we are by no means an expert on any one of those things, I would love to be a support and help to you!

I love to take pictures of my babies, so you will see a lot of them, and I love to craft with them, so you will see some of that! You will hear about adoption, and medical stuff, and life with four kids.

Welcome to our life!
