I Think I’ll Choose Weak, Today from Every Bitter Thing is Sweet

If you walked into my kitchen at 5pm in the winter after we’d completed one of our adoptions you might have thought we were ruined. I surely did.

Why I Wear the Same Thing Each Day from Her View from Home

I remember how my grandmother, now 89-years-old, responded to my mother’s end of season clearances purchases with this perspective: “Would you buy an elephant if it were only a dollar?”

A Playlist for the Nervous Traveler from emily p. freeman

It was in this moment that I realized I needed to be more prepared next time. In moments of potential panic, I have very specific requirements for the kind of music that is allowed to sing to me in my ears. It was time to create an official Turbulence Playlist.

The Love Your Home  Spring Challenge from The Inspired Room

I find that making a commitment to simple daily progress around the home is what most effortlessly transforms it and improves how I feel about my surroundings. And if we are all doing these same daily projects together, we can feel more inspired!

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.
