I’m happy to announce the first (of several, I hope) guest posts for Having A Baby In China.
It addresses issues that expat families and Chinese-foreign families meet in getting non-Chinese citizenship for their newborn babies.

I’m very excited to announce that a story about my pregnancy with Nathaniel is included in Knocked Up Abroad Again: Baby bumps, twists, and turns around the globe, the second book in a series of mothering abroad. This massive project, a collection of 26 stories that span 25 countries, was done by Lisa Ferland.
From the Kickstarter page:
Knocked Up Abroad Again: Baby bumps, twists, and turns around the globe is a +250-page anthology written by 26 mothers in 25 different countries, all with a pioneer woman attitude.
Each mother, with her unique voice and from her perspective, describes the highs and lows of motherhood as she straddles the distance between what was once familiar and the reality of her foreign environment.
This heartwarming, sometimes hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking collection of stories illustrates that the more we see, the more we learn about ourselves as human beings.
Also included in the book are fellow expats in China, Ruth from China Elevator Stories and Vanessa, editor at beijingkids magazine.
If you’re interested in a copy of the book, digital or print, preorder it here. Or simply help share the project via social media at the Knocked Up Abroad Again site.
