Empowered to Connect in Person – It's Going to be Great!

Registration is now open for the Empowered to Connect Conference in Denver, April 8th and 9th. Please spread the word.

Empowered to Connect Conference

The conference is two full days of teaching by Dr. Karyn Purvis  and Michael and Amy Monroe for only $35 per person or $50 per couple.  That is an amazing deal – absolutely amazing.  You really need to be there.

Here is a more detailed schedule.

I plan to be at the conference and Russ is hoping to join me.   Leave me a comment and let me know if you think you might make it!  I would love to meet every one of you!

Look at Rusty's beautiful teeth!

In family news, Rusty got his braces off yesterday so we currently have only one child in braces! He looks fabulous.  I’m sorry to say that my children (by birth) got the unfortunate combination of my large teeth and small jaw and none have escaped braces thus far.  Honeybee may be the first of our children not to need them; we keep teasing her that there may be a special prize in store!

The downside was that I spent the day in Spokane with an appointment at 8:15 to remove Rusty’s braces and an appointment at 2:30 to get his retainers.

The upside was that I spent the day in Spokane, hanging out in the waiting room (which had Wi-fi), taking Rusty and Ladybug out for lunch (she had an appt. too), and going to Target.  We small town girls get excited about things like that.

A very heartfelt thank you for all of your wonderful comments on my Anniversary post! Wow – you all outdid yourselves.  If you haven’t left a comment yet, please do.  I’m going to gather your requests together and use them to determine my upcoming topics.

Have a great Wednesday!

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.

    We're really hoping to go! Now all I need to do is find someone willing to keep our delightful, but sensory seeking 3 year old!! (Maybe I should pack his mini-tramp in his overnight bag?)

    I registered this morning, like 5 seconds after I got the e-mail saying the registration was open! I am so excited. I've been reading your clog for about 6 months and I am really enjoying it!

    You're right, that is a STEAL!!
    I'm going to try to make it. I would really like my husband to join me as I seem to be the one always taking in all the information and relaying it to him. It's the childcare-for-our-kids piece of the puzzle that I'm not sure about yet –
    But I hope to be there and to meet you!!

    Lisa, My husband and I are working on our homestudy. Do you (or your readers) recommend the conference for parents before they have children. I would love to go! We wouldn't have a daycare issue without kids, but my husband is having a hard time justifying airfare and hotel when we are trying to save fore adoption fees. What are your thoughts?

      Yes, you should come to the conference! If you can possibly make it, you will be laying a foundation and preparing yourselves in the event that your children need a little (or a lot) of extra help. Not only that, you will connect with other families who share your heart for adoption, and that alone is a gift. I highly recommend you attend if at all possible.

        Lisa, I read your reply to my husband and, if he can get the time off of work, we are going to be at the conference in Denver! We are so excited! Hopefully we will be able to meet while we are there!

          Beth, I am so glad you are going to try to make it. I was just watching a DVD of Dr. Purvis teaching and thinking how much I wish I would have found her work before we brought our children home! Russ and I would love to meet you; be sure to introduce yourselves to us.
