More Than Just a Mom

My story isn’t one of the traditional sense. First of all, I’m over 35 and unmarried (whaaaat?!). Secondly, I am a foster parent. Yes, that means I chose to step into a very difficult and broken situation. From the photo above it may look like I have it all but my story is filled with tremendous losses, poor decisions, broken dreams, and some downright traumatizing circumstances. After years of learning and working on myself, I overcame. I transformed my way of thinking. My heart was restored by Jesus. And He can do the same for you. Tune in for a journey about living a Kingdom single life in a messed up world, becoming an insta-mommy by saying “Yes” to foster care and ultimately adoption, and maintaining hope when things don’t go anywhere close to as expected. Come here for encouragement, perspective, and fun stories too!
