We love being parents. We could be the multicultural, biracial, educated, adventurous, kind and giving family you’ve been looking for. We are a bit zany, love dance parties, roller skating and don’t even get us started on our impersonations. We came up hard therefore we consciously parent with intentionality and positive discipline. We are open, non-judgmental and focus raising good global citizens - we believe in leaving every situation better than we left it. 🌎
Majdah is the magic in our family. She’s my curvy goddess with an infectious smile and heart of gold. She’s creative, has a wicked sense of humor, and brings love and light into every room she walks. Watch out, she just might break out in comedic song - she can be a total goofball. She’s at home with people from every background and believes that we have more in common than we have differences. Most people who know her don’t think there’s a nicer person on earth. The way she walks through life is the best way to teach our kids how to leave every situation better than how you found it. Her mantra in life - "if you can be anything in life, why not be kind?" While she’s kind and compassionate, she’s a lioness when it comes to protecting and advocating for our children. She’s playful but firm. Teaching them to be good human beings who are mindful stewards of the earth is paramount. But she also wants their childhoods to be magical; they only get one chance to be kids.
Diallo is smart, hilarious, and grounded. He is quiet at first, but don’t let that fool you as he will have you in stitches with his jokes, dance moves and impersonations. He's super athletic-we want him to go on American Ninja Warrior. Diallo is the grantor of my wishes. His word is his bond; I can always depend on him. He's incredibly intelligent but as modest as they come. When others boast, he is humble. He gives to those in need and takes little credit. He's the guy that does what's inconvenient for him to make others’ lives easier. He is steady and never loses his cool. Diallo is our protector and our steady. He is dependable, patient, kind and always finds a way to turn tears into laughter. He is the lunch-maker, activity scheduler and homework helper. Having lost his father at 5, he is giving them the childhood he had wished for. We are the luckiest to have him.
