I am a follower of Jesus Christ, whom I deeply love. I have been married to my best friend, Doug, for over 30 years. God has blessed me with 7 incredible kids that call me "Mom". My 7th recently married my son, Russ, and became my daughter-in-love.
We have adopted 3 girls from China - Kate (10), Rachel (9), and Ellie (9) and finally, Abby (8). We hope to bring her home in late Fall 2013. God has used this life changing journey to grow in me a huge heart for orphan and adoption ministries. I love helping others through the adoption process and being a personal resource for people throughout each stage of this wonderful ministry.
I love to share my journey with Christ, as seen in this blog, through speaking at women's events around the country. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in having me come speak to your group.
