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 TBRIĀ® 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.

    Hi, I know MK through Xanga and just wanted to comment saying how excited i am for your family! My parents are adopting two from Liberia, but we had considered adopting from Ethiopia.
    Anyway, MK said to comment, and I’m a bit of an adoption blog junkie anyways so I simply had to stop by.
    My prayers will be with your family through this new and exciting journey!

    Michael Plaza is going to comment after me and we both agree that the picture (and the adoption) is a wonderful thing.

    Welcome to the Blogger ranks! That’s really neat you’re adopting! I’ve seen a post or two on MKs blog and look forward to hearing more as the process rolls along. God bless!
