How Horses Help Kids Heal

# 30 How Horses Can Help Kids Heal

First of all, I loved every minute of speaking at Refresh. I shared my heart and thoughts with foster and adoptive parents. It’s amazing to be with people who understand our unique parenting experience.

Best of all, three of my kids spoke with me in a breakout about the sibling experience in foster and adoptive families. They were fantastic. Having them with me gave me so much joy.

This week’s podcast episode is about equine therapy for kids with adverse experiences. It is very interesting!

While I don’t have experience with horses, I will say, our sweet dog has been an instrument of healing for my kids and even for me. Animals can reach kids in ways we can’t.

I’m getting ready to start a book group for the month of April. If you subscribe to my weekly email, you already know about it. If you don’t, you can subscribe here and I’ll fill you in. I’ll share more in my next post!

Have a wonderful weekend,

With love,

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.
