Sometimes gratitude doesn’t come easily, and that’s when it’s most important. This took effort this morning. I wasn’t going to post anything, but I need to declare my thanks to God for the amazing and constant kindness he shows to me.

It’s time for me to wake my family and get ready for church. I hope your day has pockets of joy, friends, and if you find it lacking, join me in finding ten things to be thankful for.

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.
