It’s been far too long! Between snow days and Spring Break, my days have been a little disorganized.
I’ve also been preparing to speak at The Refresh Conference. I’m teaching two breakouts, When Your Heart Feels Trampled (and you’re finding it hard to even like your child) and The Impact of Adoption/Fostering on Siblings.
The title of the first one is tough, but I’m all about honesty and I get this question a lot when I coach parents, so I’m diving in. I’m teaching about:
- Why this happens (there is a reason).
- What Blocked Care looks and feels like.
- Numerous ways of overcoming it, physical and mental solutions, and faith.
The Sibling breakout is extra special because I’m interviewing three of my kids: Isaiah, Annarose, and Claire about their experiences of having four children join the family through adoption, and one more through foster care.
I also have three recent podcast episodes

With love, courage, and hope,
