Poignant Video and Song

Please take a moment to watch this short video and song by Sara Groves. It speaks clearly of what so many of us have experienced on our trips to Ethiopia. I know that Russ and I will never be the same.

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.

    Thank you so much for sharing that, Lisa. It was so touching. How can we be the same after what we’ve seen and experienced? I hope that you all are doing well at the beginning of the school year!
