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.

    I can't tell you how many times I've seen this video posted in the past week! And just as we are praying about adopting again! No-brainer…we're heading to Ethiopia!!!!!!!! Praise God for using this video to touch soooo many!

    I saw this on a friend's blog yesterday, and wept. My two week old foster daughter was returned to her bio family this week, and we are fearful for her safety. It is so comforting to know God's heart for His little ones!

    My wife sent this to me to watch since we are working on adopting a 2 yr old little boy and a 3 month old little girl. Already having 4 boys of our own sometimes as a dad I struggle with patients and not connecting with our new little guy. But watching this reminds me why we started this process in the first place. Because God called us to reach out to the brokenhearted and the fatherless and He will work all these things out in His time and not mine. People frequently tell me how nice, your making a difference in that little ones life but oh the difference that is being made in my life. If we are not living each day in Faith for something then what are we living for.
