It's the hardest thing you will ever do. So few truly understand.

Welcome to a community of people, just like you, figuring this out together.

My Story

For over ten years I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of clients as a licensed counselor.  I have a masters degree in counseling psychology and certification in the treatment of child trauma.  I loved working with these families, but then...


What was I thinking?  At the age of 40, this single, white Canadian girl moved in with my best friend Roy, and we invited 7 brothers and sisters to join us.  We became foster parents to a set of amazing kids and I wouldn’t change a thing.  


I’ve been there. I’m living it today. I’m not perfect, but with a glass of wine and a bit of chocolate, I’m doing the best I can through the pain and joy of parenting our children.
