It's Great to be a Big Girl

Honeybee is happy with her newly pierced ears.

She was nervous…

…but Sweet Pea held her close…

…and soon it was done … just one more ear to go!

Dimples and Boo thought they should get their ears pierced at the same time, and in the interest of efficiency, I was very tempted, but they are going to have to wait a little bit longer. This time it was Honeybee’s turn.

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.
