"Happy Birthday, Dimples!"

She made a seven (albeit backward) with her candles.

Dimples turned seven last week and it was a happy day for her. She especially enjoyed making her birthday cake, frosting it, and decorating it with lollipops and gummy bears. It is rather humorous because our children used to decorate their cakes with candy, but that tradition had faded away. Having studied the family scrapbooks, Dimples, decided that she needed to revive this practice. She was quite pleased with the crazy cake she created.

She was also thrilled with her birthday gifts: a Belle dress, wand, and crown. What more could a girl want?

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.
