Why We Took the Leap Into Foster Care

I’m honored to be a guest author today on the fabulous blog, Confessions of an Adoptive Parent.

God called us to do something unexpected when we became foster parents to a teen girl. Two and a half years later, as Zoe prepares to leave our home, I have so many thoughts and feelings.

I share some of them in this post, When Faith Requires You to Do Something Scary.

Note the title isn’t about faith requiring you to do something dangerous or foolish – but something that pushes you farther than you might think you can go.

I’d love to hear what you think.

With hope and courage, my friend,

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.
