This blog is an attempt to capture a variety of essays in one place. Most of them are about life with my daughter, Selam, adopted from Ethiopia in 2009. But others might be about church (I’m a PCUSA pastor), faith, cats, work, and Diet Coke.

The title comes from a line in Dan Zanes’ song “Jump Up” which has always been a favorite Selam and Mommy dance tune.  The lyrics can be found here:

http://www.danzanes.com/songbook/family-dance/jump-up.  I actually wanted to name it “I love, love love you” which is my favorite phrase from the song, but that one is taken.  I dare you to listen to that song without wanting to dance with a kid or two or ten.

  1. Hi Susan,

    We (adoptionjourney.org) love your blog and were wondering if you might like to collaborate with us as we try to make the adoption process a little easier for other families out there. If you’re interested, please email me.
