Wednesday Morning and Giveaway

I woke up early this morning with my mind (and heart) racing over all I need to accomplish.  I am seriously questioning everything I have committed myself to do this week.  Today holds an eye exam, homeschooling, piano and art lessons, Dimples’ geography bee, all followed by the drive to Coeur d’Alene for therapy and a trip to Costco.  I’m already doing lots of deep breathing and hoping I don’t forget a child anywhere today.

Last call to enter the giveaway for a DVD featuring Dr. Karyn Purvis and the work of the TCU Institute of Child Development,”Empowering, Connecting & Correcting Principles”.  Thank you for all of the great entries so far.  I’ll do a random drawing to choose a winner tomorrow.

In much happier news, we are loving our visit with Hannah and Isaiah.  Yesterday we cut our tree and last night we had fun decorating it. Two of my children had a rough evening, and it was a bit much for me – actually it was a lot much for me.  I’m praying today will be better.

A huge thank you to everyone who responded to our Tuesday Topic, Did You Give Your Adopted Children New Names?  I have enjoyed reading every single comment; I hope you have too.

Book Group friends, tomorrow I’ll post questions for our last chapter of The Whole-Brain Child.  It has been wonderful reading it with all of you.

All for this morning,

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.
