Hope

Man! I had it. I had hope in spades. It was tangible. It was the kind of hope that was built by my faith. It was the kind of faith that brought incredible peace. A peace that is complex and somewhat foreign to me.

Foster Parent Spotlight - September

I have quite the soft spot for this month’s foster family. Not just because at activities I am tired just watching the energy level that their children have, but because there is nothing this family will not do for a child in their care. The Calderons are hardworking, dedicated and have a beautiful story on their journey so far.

First Day of School

So, it’s the first day of school, well kind of…. As you all are currently experiencing, today is very different than in years past. Your kids may be doing virtual, or at least you thought until the state of NC had an internet crash due to too many people being on, or your kids may be doing 50/50 in school. No matter what it looks like, it is different for sure!

Foster Parent Spotlight - August

Words cannot express the joy and blessing it is to write about our foster family for this month's spotlight. As a foster parent myself, being in the trenches reminds me how hard it can be. Hearing about the single parents who navigate this without a spouse and someone to share the workload leaves me humbled and in awe. This month's foster dad has done just that since the moment I met him. From his incredible faith to his testimony about growing up, the list of his academic degrees and credentials, his vocational experiences and his journey fostering over the many years... I am convinced there isn't anything Peter cannot do.

Be Ready

July 17th started out like any other COVID-19 groundhog day endeavor. Trying to be upbeat and start the day on a positive note because I knew it wouldn't last. Inevitably all our tempers and short fuses would get the best of us the second I needed to get on a conference call, respond to an email for work or meet the needs of another wailing child. In the middle of March COVID closed every door and left our family stranded at home, quarantined to just the 6 of us. Since then we have been struggling to make it to bedtime and meet work deadlines between lunch and laundry each and everyday with no end in sight. From my perspective it has felt like the worst version of groundhog day that a working mom could fathom.

Struggling for Control

Most people want to be in control.  They desire to be in control of a situation, their job, their spouse, their children, but what happens when we lose control in unpredictable situations? Think of an airplane that is late leaving?  Some people are cool, calm and collect when things change…but most are not.  Let’s just call me the second one, the one who doesn’t handle it well when plans change.
