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.

    NyQuil. Kleenex. Warm bed. My hubby. My toddler son, who keeps trying to "fix" mommy with his toolkit.

    A cozy warm home, friends who volunteer to watch my little ones so we could have a date, beautiful sparkling snow.

    The birth of our beautiful fifth grandchild last week, healing for several in our family who have been sick this winter, a few days off work with my hubby and time for us to evaluate and plan for the year
