Left Out

This weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada. Holidays are hard for many people for many reasons. Most of us find our way to turkey this weekend.   If not turkey, at least to family or friends for gathering and giving thanks. Now imagine you are plucked out of your thanksgiving dinner.   You are taken away by... Continue Reading →

I’m so sorry

I'm sorry. I didn't really get it until today. Never have I understood the depth of hatred that some people have. Today I was reading blogs on WordPress and I did something I don't often do and that was search a topic and start reading. I searched teenagers. Mostly because they have been on my...

English Hot Tub Buddies

So the last few days one of my best girl friends, Jen, (who has lots of English heritage) has been inundated with photos, people and stories from the Netherlands (which is my heritage).   She has sent me a few texts talking about when we last went to Holland and visited the Keukenhof and Harlingen....

Daddy Protect Yourself

The other day, I chatted with a brand new foster Momma. They are about to take in a teen girl.   First placement.   Brave you say?   I say trusting.   They are trusting the strength of their family and community to make it work.   They trust their skills as parents.   They... Continue Reading →

Welcoming Presidents and Orphans

Foster Siblings

The Ups and Downs of Foster Siblings  By Jessie I am almost ten years old.   I have always had lots and lots of foster siblings since I was a baby.   I was a foster child when I was a baby but my parents adopted me and my sister.   There are good things and bad things... Continue Reading →

Fish for Grandpa

Last week my husband got to go out on a big fishing boat and go fishing.   Definitely not something he does or has ever done.   It was pretty cool to see him with these huge fish.   A week later and he put those giant fish on the smoker.   I thought he was a little crazy... Continue Reading →
