I Could Really Use a Wish Right Now, Wish Right Now…

Over Memorial Day weekend, Samuel, Rusty, my niece and two of their friends recorded an acoustic cover of B.o.B’s “Airplanes.” Greenstorm Film (an indie production company comprised of Mimi, her fiance Andrew, and their friend Jay) filmed and produced the music video. The recording of the song was produced by Samuel, who also played guitar. Rusty and my niece sang lead vocals, while our friends played strings.

Music, recording, and film became a significant part of Samuel and Rusty’s homeschooling this year. It is very fitting that they completed this project just in time for Samuel’s graduation.

Take a look!

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.
