My wife and I (we've been married for nearly 12 years and I still don't feel 100% that I'm not just pretending to be a grown up when I write "My wife and I") just got back from dinner at this great performance/film/dinner venue in Brooklyn. As we left I texted the babysitter to let her know that we were...

Alana left last week to go to England to play some shows and travel through Europe. When she got to the UK her lack of return ticket gave the authorities pause- but only a little pause- within a few hours they'd stuck her back on a plane to ...

uh oh My friend just emailed me this UK article about sperm produced from stem cells. While this may make things a little less emotionally complex for the parents, kids will still be left wanting to know their roots...

One of those things is...

Alana was our saviour yesterday. F has finished school for the year and was home all day. I had a lot to get done before leaving for vacation to see my mother in NC. Alana hung out with F and did a few projects- like making a movie poster for the movie that we have been working on. F is still...

Last night Alana and I went to meet with my friend Yvette. I've know Yvette for over a decade but we've always hung out in group setting so I didn't know much about her background. Shortly after I posted my op-ed Yvette contacted me to tell me that she was adopted and had been thinking a lot about it recently....

I made my first post a few days ago. One of the commenters was Alana Sveta. She invited me to use a song of hers for my movie.I listened and was blown away. Turns out that she was on her way from New Orleans to Brooklyn on tour. A few days after writing her comment, she was staying at my...
