Sunday Visit: I Will Give it to You

Owlhaven is one of the first blogs I read when we began our adoption process in 2006 – which is also when I began my blog.  Mary and I have a lot in common.  We’re both moms of large families made up of kids by birth and adoption, long-time bloggers, homeschoolers, Christians, and amazingly, we both live in Idaho!  

We talked recently and decided we really should meet in person – when we do, I’ll tell you – and maybe share a picture.

Mary wrote this post not long ago and I found it to be very encouraging; I hope you like it too.

I Will Give it to You

Mary also writes about frugal living, cooking, and crafting – yes, she even sews.  You will like her post, 5 Christmas Gifts You Can Make.

Have a great Sunday, friends.  Hannah and Isaiah are both home for a visit and we are happy and busy.  This afternoon we are taking our family Christmas picture, which is always an adventure.  Let’s hope it’s an adventure we want to remember.

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.

    Your last paragraph made me laugh. Hugs to H and I from me… and I can't wait to see the picture.
