Giveaway Winners!

I’m back from Seattle and have had a lovely Sunday with  my family.  We enjoyed church, had a simple dinner, carved pumpkins, and took the kids for a walk out of town, including hiking up the combine tracks in some hilly, harvested fields.  Honeybee and Sunshine gathered grasses and made a fantastic centerpiece for our dining room table.  I’ll share a picture later.

I am finally ready to announce the winners of The Connected Child and the companion guide, Created to Connect.  Thank you so much for your patience.

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.

    Ooh! I have literally just performed a happy dance and song for my children (lyrics: "I won something! I won something! I'm so happy happy happy!"). I haven't won anything, not a thing, since the spectacular feat of correctly guessing the jellybeans at the year-end school fair in grade 2. I'll send you my address; thank you so, so much! Can't wait to read the book. Thanks!

    Yea! I'm so excited! I actually went onto Amazon on Friday and put those in my shopping cart … got distracted and DIDN"T make the purchase. Yippee!

    I'll email my address to you.

    Laurel 🙂
