Author name: Kam

A wife and mom with six teenagers. Three by birth, three by adoption. I am trying to walk out the "crazy" of running a business, teenagers that come alive at 10pm, homeschool, private school, public school, trauma, behavior issues, delays, while trying to be a good wife and Christian. I fail...a lot. But I don't mind sharing so you know you aren't alone in your journey!!

Sometimes the apples tip the basket!

That stuff just doesn’t impress me.  I can get behind someone who get’s their hands dirty though. I have …

Brain Waves…Goodbye

Getting closer to our departure just adds more to my brain. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited and really pretty calm. It’s the “grey matter” in my head that seems to nap during the day but then talks incessantly at night! She’s overworked. My brain is not good at lullaby stories. In fact it can be a frightening little …

I Has Hope

This journey called “adoption” is turning out to be the hardest I have ever been on. More courage has been required of me than anything else I have prayed for. I truly believe that parenting these small people will be easier than the process to get them. This morning my husband & I made the …
