Welcome! We are the Hiking Family and we believe that adventure is for all. Join us as we inspire others, no matter their obstacles, to get outdoors and live a life of adventure. We hike, we blog….but most of all we strive to spread love wherever we go.
Hiking Mama-the author of this blog–is a lover of nature, avid hiker, chemistry professor and a mother to two boys adopted from across the globe–one who happens to have autism. She fiercely believes that adventure is for all and uses her blog (http://hikebloglove.com) to inspire others to get outdoors and live a life of adventure despite the obstacles that might stand in the way.
When not blogging about the outdoors, Hiking Mama uses her voice to advocate for the adoption and welfare of older, special needs orphans of the world. As both an adoptive mother and special needs mom, she is passionate about raising awareness in the areas that have affected her at a personal level, such as orphan care, family preservation, HIV/AIDS, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Autism. She is also a regular contributor to the Social Good column at World Moms Blog, a member of the Social Good Moms #globalteamof200 and a RESULTS grassroots activist.
The Hubby: He’s just along for the ride. Hold on tight, hon’.
Little Man: Little Man is 5 years old and was born in Vietnam. He was adopted in 2008 at the age of 11 months. He’s as fiesty as they come, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love my little firecracker!
Big Brother: Big Brother is 5 years old and was born in Hong Kong, China. He was adopted in 2011 right before his 4th birthday. He is a special little boy who has brought much joy to our lives. We are so happy that he is now a part of our family. You can get to know him better by reading this post.
