Birthday Girl

Our family tradition is to let the children choose a “sweet cereal” for their birthday morning. Here is Boo with her favorite.

Boo was born in our local hospital with Russ, Hannah, and Mimi there to catch her (with a little help from our doctor) and my Mom holding my hand. As soon as she was born, before we even looked to see if she was a boy or girl, the rest of the family came in and we all peeked together to see that we had a little girl. We came home from the hospital a few hours later with her in this stocking and the little Santa hat on her head.

Our children always frost and decorate their own cakes.

Rusty and Ladybug made this birthday hat for Boo. More photos to come in my next post (I can’t figure out how to post more than four at a time).

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.
