Meet Our Family

 

ourfamily

Life hasn’t gone the way we planned. I dreamed of being a big sister but I never got that wish granted, so I settled for motherhood. God is somehow using using us, ordinary people, to reveal his grace and desires to our community.

I married my college boyfriend and we’ve been fumbling through marriage and life together. We have four babies that I birthed and a constant revolving #5 spot.

God has grown our hearts for foster care and we love pushing others to listen to his call on their lives to get messy with people in their own community.

I’m so in need of God’s grace-aren’t we all?

I love hearing from other foster mamas and folks who know this road well. Or not at all…but WANT to know it. Leave me a note.

I also love sharing our story of redemption and hope in a transparent forum. We would love to speak at your conference or church about any part of our journey.

Thanks for reading and sharing!!

    Hi there! I was just introduced to your blog by my sweet friend, Erin (LeBoeuf) Clymer (she said you were sorority sisters in college). 🙂 We recently became a foster family, and it is always so nice to meet other families that are on the same journey. I live in Ocala and am thankful for this new connection. I LOVED this latest blog post and can’t wait to read some more. Many Blessings to you and your family as you choose to love others deeply!!!

    Oops! Didn’t realize that my comment would show up for the world to see. 😉 I guess I was thinking it would send as an email. Please feel free to delete that after you read it. 🙂 Ha!

    kristy,
    I just met you last night at Barbara’s jewelry party and hunted down your blog lol! I’ve only read one post and the tears are spilling down my cheeks! Thanks for your openness and honesty about being a foster parent – it’s something I hope to take on in the future!

    I am really enjoying your blog. Do you hope to adopt, or is your heart set on fostering alone?

      We will most likely foster until the Lord leads another way.

        How could I ask you more questions about foster care?

    We, too, have 4 children of our own. We are interested in fostering a child. Life has been very good to us and I would love to help another.
