If you would have told me ten years ago I would be the mom of seven kids I would have laughed in your face. If you would have told me five years ago I would consider writing our story down for others to read I would have told you “I’m not a writer I’m just mom”. But here we are, how crazy exciting is this!!!
For those that don’t know about a year and a half ago I started writing our story. Our story about us becoming our three plus one, our story of us becoming a foster family, our story as God intended it to be from the every beginning. I never really imagined it would go anywhere. I’m not a writer nor did I ever plan to be. I am no one special, but when God tells you to do something you listen. And one word turned into two, one page turned into a chapter and before I knew it our story was on the computer screen. I asked a few friends to read it over to see what they thought and when their responses were positive and supportive I just had to see if I could get our story out there to help others. Yesterday I got the call…..
Xulon Press has agreed to publish my book. They love the story and feel that it can inspire others both to become foster parents and to open their homes through adoption. How crazy cool it that?!?! I am so humbled and so overwhelmed.
I am so thankful God gave us such a beautiful crazy story to share. My hope is that our story can touch the lives of others and maybe just maybe change the outcome for a child lost in the system of foster care.
This wild ride is about to get even crazier! So excited, so thankful, so very blessed
