Raising Resilient Rascals Conference

If you live in the Northwest, I highly encourage you to attend this conference!

Raising Resilient Rascals Takes Flight

This two day conference for adoptive and foster families will be fantastic. Deborah Gray, Julia Beldsoe MD and Julian Davies MD from the UW Center for Adoption Medicine, as well as other professionals and parents will be giving talks. Based solely on what I know of Deborah Gray and Dr. Bledsoe, I am sure this conference will be very helpful.

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.

    Just thought I would ask for prayer on this. I really feel we should go, but the money will be hard to come up with. Please pray God would provide it. I feel very strongly Bj and I need this right now. thanks Chrisitne
