Two Weeks From Today

Two weeks from today my baby will walk down the aisle to her sweetheart, Andrew.  Some days I am so busy with wedding plans and life that I nearly miss how significant this is!  There are many details still to be covered, but the day is drawing close and we are excited.

The yard is looking more beautiful every day, with flowers blooming, weeds pulled, edges trimmed, etc.  We need to mow a section of our pasture where guests will be parking and figure out how to get everybody safely parked and as far up the hill as possible.  We don’t want our guests to feel that they had to hike to the reception.

Tuxes have been ordered, my dress is hanging in the closet, the six youngest all have their outfits, and braiding appointments are being arranged.  Mimi is squeezing in final dental, eye, and doctor appointments while she is still on our insurance.  Even Andrew made it to the dentist!

We have one more trip to Seattle before  the wedding (!), but we’ve had a long break, so I can’t complain.  It will be good for the girls to see their therapist and we are looking forward to seeing friends.

Don’t forget to add your thoughts to this week’s Tuesday Topic: Preparing Children. I’ll post your responses Monday morning.

Have a wonderful Fourth of July!

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 believe it's only 2 weeks. You must be so excited. How wonderful and weird at the same time.
    Looking forward to seeing the pictures.

    Its a summer of weddings for me (although I'm in that age where I have at least three a year so that's typical). I helped throw my college roommate's wedding last month, it was crazy but it was one of the most rewarding things we've done together. Many blessing's to Mimi and Andrew and your whole family.
