I am a momma of two growing boys under the age of two! They keep me very busy and I love being able to stay at home with them. My husband is an Anesthesia resident and we are both passionate about raising our boys bilingual. While teaching them about their bi-cultural heritage through daily experiences. We love to explore our city of Milwaukee and we share our family's stories on our blog!
We are a multicultural family. My husband was born and raised in Wisconsin, and his ancestors are from Germany, Poland and Belgium. His great-grandparents emigrated from Germany four generations ago. I was born in the U.S., as my parents moved to the mainland from Puerto Rico before I was born.
I remember when our older son Gabriel was just a few weeks old. I used to wrap him up snugly inside the baby wrap and walk around our neighborhood until he fell asleep. I think he loved hearing the sounds of the leaves in the wind, the cars slowly driving by and the smell of fresh air.
Several years ago, I heard a very inspiring speaker share part of his life story along with his groundbreaking work in urban farming at an agricultural conference here in Wisconsin. I was profoundly impacted by his view on agriculture, culture, politics, economics and how all of these play a role in the success of our communities. Not too long after our first son Gabriel's birth, I realized that Milwaukee was the home of the speaker I heard years ago: Will Allen of Growing Power. We finally were able to adventure there as a family this September!
