Articles by Laura Willard:

Laura Willard is a law school grad who has successfully avoided using her education for seven years and counting. She's a wife and an adoptive mom to a preschooler and kindergartener who are, without a doubt, the cutest kids ever. Motherhood is the best job she never knew she wanted so much until she had it. She's a busy editor, writer and sometimes blogger. You can find her work in many places, including AllParenting, SheKnows, National Geographic, Adoption Mosaic, Pregnancy and Baby, Real Moms Guide, Aiming Low and Red Tricycle, among others. She keeps a personal blog, A(n) (un)Common Family, that covers whatever random thoughts land in her overused brain, and she relies heavily on pictures of her cute kids to distract you from the randomness that sometimes flows from her fingers. Laura is certain sarcasm is a language, so she's totally bilingual. She loves wine, walking on the beach and sleeping. (Sadly, she only has time for the first two.) You can also find her on TwitterInstagram, Pinterest and Facebook.
