I’m the mother of twelve by birth and adoption – six boys and six girls. Once lost and now found, I’ve been brought to my knees by grace.

Thirty-two years ago I married Russ, the greatest blessing of my life.

Our adoption journey has been marked by joy as well as challenges of trauma and attachment. I earnestly believe in the power of Jesus to heal children’s broken hearts and wounded minds. My life has also been changed by grief; my daughter, Kalkidan, went to be with Jesus on December 27, 2014. Six months later, I lost my son, Nick.

I believe with all my heart that God is faithful, he is good, and my life is entirely in his hands. He gives me the courage to live, and love, and fills my heart with hope and gratitude even in the presence of suffering. Find my website, Thankful Moms, at
