The Elephant Mum

Italian mother of two living in the capital area of Finland. Our clan includes also my Italian husband, our daughter R. (b. 2013) and our son E. (b. 2015, joined us through international adoption in 2017). Our family is a hot mess of cultures, a blend of Italian, Finnish, and Indian. I write about adoption, multicultural families, bilingualism, expat life in Finland, and much more of the parenting world. We live in the beautiful natural wonder that is Finland, the forest starting just outside our doorstep.

arrival gate

We are two Americans on an adventure, learning the ins and outs of living in Finland. We moved to Rauma, Finland in April 2012 and have high hopes of exploring this country and many others on our travels. Among other things, we love food and yoga, so expect lots of posts and pictures about each! As we learn to live and adapt to a new home far from what we know, my hope is to share what we learn, great places to visit, and details about this beautiful country of Finland.
