My Guest Post: Six Things Adoptive/Foster Families Need

Today I’m a Guest Author at We are Grafted In.  The site is “a place where we can gather as those who love God and either desire to build or grow our families through adoption, support those who do, or provide care for the millions of orphans around the world.”

I would love to have you read my article, Six Things Adoptive/Foster Families Need When New Children Arrive.  Many of you helped write it!

Additionally, my friend, Jillian, is doing a series on different perspectives in the adoption world and is sharing my Tell it Well series. Maybe this is the impetus I need to complete the series which I started last January.

Happy Saturday, friends.

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.
