Update:
Our little guy seems to be doing a little better each week. We are only pulling our pants and Underwear down / throwing our socks and shoes off a handful of times a day 🤦🏼‍♀️😂 Doctors appointments are still really rough, and we have quite a few of them a month. I have been praying for more patience and grace with this little one. We are definitely SMART, but have a huge communication barrier, which causes some major frustrations for both of us. We are hoping to get him all set up with the help and resources he needs next month. Each week I feel like his speech is a little better then the previous week. He has become my little side kick at @csagym yelling at my 9am class. “ Let’s go” “ Good Job” “Faster” 🤦🏼‍♀️😂👌🏼 He also started giving them fist bumps 👊🏼 after the WOD and saying good job . It’s the cutest thing ever 😍❤️ His sense of humor has definitely made an appearance. 😂 Everyday we get a song and dance performance that ends with a bow and a “ thank you thank you” 🙌🏼 He also has a way with the ladies 😍 He is major sweet talker. Chris and I are exhausted, but taking every day one day at a time. Thank you to everyone who has donated stuff to us, or just listened to our frustrations. This has been a huge adjustment, and we are so lucky to have such great community of friends and family for support. 🙏🏼 Lots of prayers for this upcoming month and the many many appointments we have. #fostercare #fosterparents @pacman.84

These 5 run my life!
And they steal my heart!

And wear me out.😌

Guess how long it took us to get a decent pic? LOL. Like 10 minutes.
.
But it's sooo worth it when the baby finally smiles. 😍
.
We have been so in love with these @katequinn_shop bamboo organic pjs and they've all loved how silky soft they are.
.
So glad they'll enjoy the hand me downs! 😂

We are going to miss these cute little rascals but are so happy Betsy and Brody are headed to New England for their furever homes! .

Reposting this from my personal account (@alexandriahinders) because I think it’s an important PSA and I want y’all to hear it too.
.
Just picked up about 600 photos to add to our 150+ photo collection of our time of being parents to this sweet baby. 😭
#thisisfostercare
.
My PSA for the day: take the dang photo, friend. Quit waiting for perfect and just take it. And then get them printed. Photo books, loose prints, what ever you choose just get them off your phone/computer and into your hands. ♥️
.
(Thank you @valmarlenecreative for taking photos of us, like this one, during our last days together. I will treasure these more than words could ever express)

Last moments with Thriller before he was adopted 😅 He was a bad kitty this morning. Can you see the guilt in his eyes? Maybe not🤣 (fyi, that purple thing is sponge from the kitchen) #busted

Some of you know but most don’t- Danny and I are in the process of becoming licensed foster parents! We have gone back and forth on the choice for a long time, but we finally came to the decision of taking the leap of faith. Were so excited/anxious/grateful/happy/scared/a million other emotions about it, but we truly, truly feel like it’s the right choice for us right now. We’re also an open book about the process, we’ve had lots of questions (and skepticism) already from those we’ve shared it with-ask away! #fosterparents #thisisfosterparenting #leapoffaith #foster

Relaxing with a book after a long day of strolling around #SilverLake. Made some new dog & human friends. Crashing with my #fosterparents but looking for permanent digs. #slideinmydm 💘

Got rid of all my pine decor y’all and now I’m looking forward to spring! We can do that here in Georgia because the weather starts to get warm again in February, and we are frequently back in our pool by March 😎 Unfortunately, the early warm weather also means hot, humid summers 🥵Last summer, we were able to escape to my parent’s house in Montana during the heat of the summer, and my oldest daughter Allie @alliezphoto got some amazing shots of Cowboy Ben 🤠 Not sure yet where we’ll vacation this summer, but we sure love to go to the mountains! But we also won’t be making the 30+ hour trip back to Montana this year either 😬 I’m thinking Tennessee! Any fave spots out there y’all? .

If you think for one second that these kids didn’t have a “snowball fight” with the sliver of leftover snow they found on the side of the road, you’d be wrong. Officially declared, “best day ever”. 😂

💗 Infertility update: I’ve had a lot of people reach out and ask if we are still biologically trying to conceive. If you remember, a few months ago, Aaron and I decided that we were going to stop treatments, medicines, testing, etc. We were/are emotionally drained from this journey and we couldn’t do it anymore. We “unofficially” still try. And by that I mean we still have unprotected sex 😂 but I don’t do OPKs or any monitoring of my cycles anymore. I have felt so much freedom from this emotional bondage I had. I feel sadness and I am still coming to an acceptance. We still grieve and we still, very much so, feel the pain of our infertility. I am thankful for a partner who supports me and encourages me in the down days. Anywho, there’s your update. #infertility #ihateinfertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesupport #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #baby #fostercare #fosterparents #fostermom #family #grieve #pain #love #family

Hey hey hey!! Little introduction post comin’ your way 👊🏻 I’m Emily, the gal behind the camera and this is my sweet little fam. My handsome hubs, my threenager Owen, and my sweet baby R ❤️ we are in the process of adopting that snuggle bug from foster care (hence covering his cute baby face) and will hopefully be officially his parents by his first birthday 👶🏽 I have some new followers lately so I figured it was time for a quick hello 🤗 #intropost #introduction #fostercare #fostertoadopt #fosterparents #lovemakesafamily #family #love #boymom #adoption #adoptionjourney

Email from one of our Colorado volunteers after our monthly check-in:
.
“They’ve been exhausted by high needs and appointments since they started fostering K’s little siblings (four children, age six and under). I know I can’t make everything perfect, but it feels good to help give them the luxury of sitting down to dinner together, with one less thing to worry about.”
.
“They can just feel normal, and cared for, and connect with the kids for a while before bed.”
.
She doubles her family’s favorite recipes and drops off dinner (plus a freezer meal, just as an extra special touch) for this family once a month. It takes her about two hours, and she’s building a real, neighborly friendship with a family at HIGH risk for isolation & burnout.

This is all of it. Right here. Pretty simple.

If you want to be a Foster Neighbor, see the link in profile for our #COS training in just one week.

If you want to bring this program to your area, in partnership with your local agencies, DM or check the link in profile for that, too!

Denver Metro, we are pressing on with your county leaders this month. Stay tuned (and let us know if you want to help!).

UNCERTAINTY a word that has been hard for me this week and has set heavy on my heart. But we must embrace uncertainty in life no matter what. It frees us from what we want to be certain. I must cling to uncertainty to find the true joy and passion in my life. We all have a unique purpose in life and @flyingbbuckingbulls and I have found that purpose and plan. In the coming months I need to work on my uncertainty and let my fear go to God. Let go of certainty and embrace uncertainty!

I love cake smash pictures and had them done when my daughter turned one. In honor of our little visitors 1st birthday next week, she had her smash cake pictures today! I don’t know if she will become a permanent part of our life but you can’t redo turning 1 🎉 I’m pretty sure she got more cake on me than she did herself 😆 #fostermom #kinship #fosterparents #fostercare
