What I blog about

Hope’s Story

Separated from my husband in the early 2000’s after my second child was born after several years of physical abuse, I chose to work as a small business consultant so that I could be present in my kids’ lives.

As the years progressed, I fulfilled a life long dream of becoming a foster parent which led to the adoption of my oldest two children, twin boys. Then as my youngest two entered the public school system after a move from Virginia to Georgia, my oldest daughter joined our family.

Now as the children are all “grown,” I am trying to figure out who I am when MOM isn’t my daily title or role any longer.

What does this next phase of life look like?
