Get Informed About Planned Parenthood

I’ve come across some good resources regarding the Planned Parenthood debacle and collected them here for your information. Get informed, whether through this post or other sources. Don’t believe the oh-so-many lies that we need Planned Parenthood or else all hell will break loose regarding women’s health care. It already has. I’m hoping…

Y’all, it’s been a really tough week in a series of tough weeks and months and years. We woke up last Monday morning to find that our oldest child had run away overnight in a very planned fashion.

It Takes a Village

Well, this is a humbling post for me to write. The events of the last few weeks have shown us that we still have a long road ahead in navigating unique challenges with our oldest two.

Respite Care

I have mentioned the topic of respite care a few times before, but today I wanted to discuss it in detail and hopefully convince some of you to sign up! When families are fostering children, they are only allowed to leave the children with approved babysitters who have filed appropriate paperwork with the supervising agency. If the foster…
