Kate is a proud mama to four amazing little sweeties {through birth + adoption} and wife to the best husband a girl could ask for! She considers herself blessed to be able to stay home with the kids, and is just starting to get into the world of homeschooling. In her "spare-time" she enjoys sharing many of the projects, stories, and gluten-free recipes that are a part of their every day lives!
  • Your story is so inspiring. I’ve always had a heart for foster care and am actually just about to start a big sister/little sister/brother program with some local foster kids and I cannot wait. We have always wanted to have our own biological children (God willing!), however, foster care is definitely something we want to look into more in the future when we’re able to.

    • That’s so awesome!! Yes, we have definitely been blessed to have both biological, and now adopted, children. I’ve heard about big brother/sister programs before but haven’t ever looked into them – that’s great that they work with foster kids as well! For us it was really helpful to know other foster families before we got started – it somehow made it seem more possible. Part of sharing our story was hoping that it would encourage others to consider pursuing it as well 🙂

      • The one we’re apart of is just for kids in foster care. The idea is to help them with school work (if they’re school aged) and/or encourage learning and relationship building as so many kids in foster care are behind on school for different reasons. The kids range from 0-18 so I’m so excited to find out who I’ll be spending my time with!

        It’s a great program with full training (which I’m doing a training course for this weekend!) so it’s an awesome thing to be apart of. We had quite a few kids in our youth group come through who were in foster care/had been in the foster care system and it made me realise just how much these kids need that one on one attention and love!

        • That’s great! And yes, kids in foster care can be so fragile. It’s so awesome that you guys can provide that additional support for them! 🙂
