Happy Birthday Rusty!

Today my son turned 14. He is a remarkable and gifted young man and I am so thankful for all that he does to help me. He designed the AHOPE t-shirt and is working on our newest shirt which we hope to unveil in a few weeks. He also is building the online AHOPE store for his Boy Scout Eagle project. He is strong in his faith, which is our greatest joy.

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.
