The Very Best

Thank you to each one of you who has taken the time to respond to yesterday’s Tuesday Topic: When You Don’t Like Your Child.  I encourage you to read the post and comments, and contribute to the discussion.  I have the very best readers in the world.  You humble me with your wisdom and generosity.  Wouldn’t it be amazing if one day we could gather to fellowship and encourage one another?  

I am heading out to spend the day with a fellow adoptive mom and her children.  She lives in Walla Walla, WA, so we’re meeting somewhere in the middle at Chief Timothy Park.   The kids are excited to spend the day swimming and playing with new friends.  Dimples chose to stay with Aunt Michele, which is a little sad for me, but probably a good choice.

I won’t have computer access to approve your comments, so if you jump into the conversation on yesterday’s post, don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up until much later today.

Russ called late last night to tell me that he and Isaiah were driving through the Masai Mara and then heading to Nairobi to begin their trip home.  They arrive home at midnight Thursday and I’m pretty sure I’ll cry when I see him.

Have a great day, friends.  Thank you again for reading my blog, for giving of yourselves, and for blessing me.

Encourage one another,

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.
