Off to See Dimples


Not much time for blogging this morning. I’m headed to Montana with my dear friend, Michele, for a visit with Dimples. We’ll arrive late this afternoon and be with her at the cottage until early evening. Friday is a family day at her program. The morning will be spent with staff and other parents. Michele and I will pick Dimples up from school after lunch and then we’ll join in the family activities for the afternoon and evening.

Saturday, we’ll be back on the road. Isaiah is coming home for the weekend and I’m looking forward to time with him. A big family dinner is in the works for Sunday. With all of the hours on the road, I should be able to get something planned, I just need to recruit a couple of kids to do the grocery shopping.

Russ completed a big project at work yesterday and is spending the last few days of his Spring Break working on the barn project. We’re getting closer and closer to starting the remodel in the house.

Have a great day – I’ll try to post an update 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.

    Praying for travelling mercies. Also praying your visit goes well with Dimples. It sounds like God has been moving in some pretty big ways in your family.

    Praying that you both arrived safely and the time with Dimples is everything you want it to be. Hope Dimples enjoys it, too. All the best.
