Shopping While it’s Still Fun (and an Amazon deal)

Not too much blogging going on because I’m trying to get all of my Christmas shopping done this weekend. I enjoy finding gifts for my family, but not when shopping drags all the way through Advent and my attitude grows sour. This weekend, I’m still having fun, so I’m pressing on.

I’ve made quite a few purchases on Amazon and just used the “Take an Extra 30% Off One Book” deal a few minutes ago. Don’t miss it if you plan to buy a book; the deal expires Dec. 1st.

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.
