Hello friends!  I really have not fallen off the face of the earth.  Honeybee and I are on our way home from New York where we were guest speakers at an amazing event for the foundation that gave us a large grant for Honeybee’s adoption.  Our days have been full and there has not been a single moment to get online.  I have lots to share and even some pictures.  Honeybee was the star of the show and did a great job speaking.

We even got to see a Broadway show!

We’ll be home by midnight and tomorrow morning I’ll jump full speed into preparing for Sweet Pea and Isaiah’s graduation party on Sunday. It’s a wild and crazy couple of weeks, but it is full of good things.

Our flight is boarding – more soon!

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.
