On Sunday Ellis totally face planted and cut up his nose. He’s fine and the best part about it all is that I didn’t have to call and report to anyone! Kids get bumps and scrapes and now I don’t have to worry about what the caseworker or DCFS or birth parents will say I can just take care of my babies!! Also Cole had a doctor’s appointment today and I got to write his real name AND write MOM instead of foster mom. 😍 #fostercare #fosterlove #adoption #fosteradopt

I want to look back at our lives in 20 years and celebrate how loud and crazy and happy it was. I want to remember how K loved her siblings so tenderly. I want to remember Cullen doing flips everywhere and always pretending to be Spider-Man. I want to remember penny always wanting to be the life of the party, I even want to remember how she purposely drives her brothers crazy to hear them scream. I want to remember how Jonah loved his baby brother, and how much he loved power rangers. I want to remember how much merrick loves the world, how no one can do wrong in his little world. I want to remember how calm and gentle Soren is as a newborn. But most of all I want to remember that these 6 kids are all absolute miracles.
Some days the trenches seem deep and my patience is spread thin but in 20 years, I want to look back and see how truly beautiful our life was.

When you can barely walk but you’re a pro wrestler.
I picked up some new fosters when I dropped Dallas off for the adoption center transport. Meet Mama Sybil and her 5 kittens! The rescuer named them after #HarryPotter characters - hopefully I will be able to get pictures of each baby soon. Sybil is pretty sick and emaciated, so my main focus right now is getting her feeling better and keeping everyone clean. It may be a few days before we can have a photo shoot with these little 12 day old nuggets!

Meet Ronald!! Pick me! Pick me! I'm the Bestest!! My name is Ronald and LOVE belly rubs! I am the sweetest happiest boy that loves his people and furry friends. Although I will be shy when I first meet new people, I will quickly warm up and want to play. I am very active and love to play, play, play....I'm that fun little guy you always wanted. I love soft toys and chewys and running circles in the yard chasing a furry friend is the best! I am awake long after my siblings have pooped out still ready to go. Im very affectionate and will come searching for a snuggle and will quickly roll over for a belly rub.....yeeesss belly rubs, my favorite! I love to held but beware if Im all wound up you will get puppy nibbles with my shark teeth! But if you hold me when I'm tired I will melt into your arms like butter. I want to be all snuggled up with you. Potty training is still in progress....I'm still pretty young and need a little patience in that area but I'm learning! So what do think? Do you have what it takes to accept all my love?

Did you know that we have a program called "Let's Hear it for the Boys?" Each month we allocate a portion of our budget to be spent on boys clothing sizes 2T-8. We consistently run low on boys clothing in these sizes and we get the most requests for support for boys in that age range.
This chart shows just how far $500 goes each month! We actually spend more than this each month but this chart is just a report from one of our shoppers for this program. She was able to purchased 148 items at roughly $3.37 each!! We work hard to stretch every dollar so that we can make sure to have enough clothing for all these sweet boys who are currently in foster care. Thank you donors for making sure this program is funded each month!

If you have a connection to a local store who would like to partner with us for this program, please let us know! We are receiving requests for more and more kids every month and want to ensure we can adequately support all of them! #withloveoregon #withlove #fostercare #fosterlove

Visit Days// Hard on the schedule and hard on her heart. Often times children in care experience “post visit” symptoms whether or not the visit was good. Those symptoms include: •Nightmares and sleep disturbances.
• Crying, sometimes excessively.
• Sadness.
• Disappointment.
• Acting out, such as stomping feet, displaying antisocial behavior, and ignoring family members.
• Anger.
• Ambivalence.
• Withdrawal.
• Anxiety// That’s a lot for a kid to handle. So we move in close even when it’s extra hard and provide extra snuggles and extra patience. And we pray.

Take a look at the little man on the right. That’s Gabe. He was born at 2lbs 15oz. When he came to us at 5 months old he was 11 lbs, and nearly dead. I had him in at the ER for breathing issues and at home I suctioned his mouth through the night wondering how long he would survive. The first 3 weeks were brutal. His muscles were so tight that I couldn’t stretch him out or play with his limbs like a typical baby. Changing his diaper or his clothes was super challenging! I always felt like I would break him. He couldn’t move or roll. I couldn’t even assist him into a sitting position because the shape he held made him slide back to his back even while being held. I didn’t think he would ever walk. He started physical therapy and she suggested having a neuro consult to give us an idea of how much progress was even possible... well here he is now. He graduated from physical therapy last week! He is walking. Our #gabeybaby is walking! He may still be tiny (17 lbs at 16 months old) but boy is he mighty! #fosterlove #miracles
