Sharon & her girlsSharon on The Blessed Barrenness

The Blessed Barrenness is a parenting and lifestyle publication, written with passion, honesty and a whole lot of heart.

I started out as an infertility blogger, documenting my struggle with infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss. The blog evolved into adoption and advocacy after the placement of my two daughters. My focus shifted to include my year-long journey to health and fitness in 2014.

I blog about parenting and the challenges of raising mixed race adopted girls. You will find me sharing on health and fitness, on books I love, on food, products and experiences we’ve enjoyed. I write about pretty much anything and everything that I enjoy or think you might enjoy.It is my story of feeling like an occasionally failing mother of two adopted daughters, as I  juggle being a wife, mother, work, sister, friend and woman.

The Blessed Barrenness was the 2015 winner of best parenting blog at the African Blogger Awards.

Children’s lives are precious. They are 100% reliant on us as their parents and care givers to protect them and keep them safe. Even a minor bumper bashing when travelling in a car could result in serious injury for their fragile bodies when they’re not strapped in properly. Seeing so many children not in car seats makes my blood boil. I feel like this is a massive failure as a parent.
