A Little Bit of News

I apologize for the silence. Thank you for continuing to check my blog to see if we have news to share.

We have been told about two little guys, but have very little information on them. Because of Thanksgiving (our case manager is out most of next week) it may be up to two weeks before we get enough information to make a decision. We are praying that the Lord will make it very clear to us whether or not these are our children.

I can share that they are both absolutely adorable and sweet.

This experience is completely unlike what I had expected. The emotions are intense and complex. At the moment, we have peace in our hearts and are trusting the Lord to make all things clear to us.

Thank you for praying for us.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    I was so excited to hear that there is finally something to work with! I will continue to pray that God’s will is clear when you get more information about the boys.

    Hang in there with all of the emotions! Just like a good rollercoaster – even if you experience a scare and want to cry through some of it after you get off you look back and say “That was great! (and you may say) Let’s do it again!”

    So excited that you have some faces to consider if God’s chosen them for your family.
    Praying for you up hill and down,
