(I guess it’s a bit outdated now, I’ll update that soon!) As well, you can read a bit more about BB8 and our time with her here.

    FOSTER CARE Q&A – adoption? the hardest part? saying no?

    This month marks two year since we started the process to be approved to be a foster family. It’s crazy how much life has changed and the number of kids in our home has gone up and down since then!

I’m hoping to have more to share in…
