Real talk here... These past few weeks have got me down. I've found my self in a rut. My negative self talk overtakes everything. I lay in bed at night and think of all the things I didn't do. "I didn't meditate, I didn't eat clean, I didn't entertain my babies with healthy stimulation and instead let them watch too much tv, I didn't make sure they got x amount of physical exercise, I skipped out on spending my first hour in the am with my Lord and Savior and instead hit the snooze button 4 times... On and on. I beat myself down with shame and guilt. Until I feel completely inferior. I feel weary. I feel burdened. // I've been in this space for days. Criticizing myself for every action I take and every thought I have. This is my demon. This is the burden I carry. I strive for perfectionism in every thing I do. Most around me don't even know the struggle inside. // But about a year and a half ago I admitted to myself I needed help. And I started seeing a Christian therapist. She has helped me name my burden for what it is. I tried to call it hypothyroidism. I tried to call it this. I tried to call it that. Then the day came where we called it for what it was. I have Anxiety. And seeing my therapist has become the best form of self care for me at this point in my life. // She helps me stay grounded in the truth. She reminds me to lean more into God and less into my head. //Today during my session, I was expressing my discontent, outlying all the things I DIDNT or HAVENT done. She looked at me with tears in her eyes and said, "You are doing more right now than any other Christian I know. You are loving these babies with your whole heart. Digging your heels in when it gets rough, trying to figure out how you can give more, how you can change to accommodate them, how you can listen to God's will MORE! Yeah, they had Cocoa Puffs for breakfast and they played video games more than you are comfortable with... But you are right here, right now doing God's work. And THAT is more important than anything you DIDNT do." // Fellow foster mommas, HEAR these words: WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYTHING YOU AREN'T DOING! Your work matters more. // Matthew 11:28

It has been a whirlwind week at our home! Taking in a new foster child can be crazy...like legitimately 🥜. Within 72 hours, you have to take them to the doctor. You have to get them clothes, shoes, find them a childcare situation, fill out paperwork, have a social worker visit your home, etc. Also, in the middle of that, it is so important to calm their fears and love on them during this transition. Their lives have been uprooted. Nothing is the same as before. It takes time to get to know them and get them adjusted to your house and how it runs. I quickly learned that our newest foster loves Minnie Mouse (which we all know made my Disney heart happy). She needed a back pack for daycare and Kerri Sue McBeth at The Mother Hen so graciously and quickly got me set up for our first day at school. I love local business, and I cannot say thank you enough for her helping us get our sweet girl getting something she loves so she is more comfortable in her new environment. #fosterfamily #shoplocal

We need your help. 🐶🐶 We need 2 foster families, or one who can take both girls! 
This is Jasmine, a 5 year old sweet as pie, female Great Pyrenees who has kennel cough. And Ginger who is a 2 year old, female Lab/Retriever Mix with kennel cough as well. They’ll need to be separated from companion animals for 7-10 days and in a chill environment- will do fine crated or in a bathroom (with added love and potty breaks, per their request). Can you be a foster HERO and help us save their lives? We’ll provide all the necessities, food, medications, kennels, toys necessary for our girls in care. Foster one, foster both. Your choice! 
Email foster@hsnt.org for more info!

#SmokeyLionMan sharing my office space, standing on a box, watching cars go by lol. Fortunately it's not raining today, and all the big dogs played *outside* at lunch and are now napping. Smokey is a big dog and he played, but for reasons of his own, he's not napping.

This week in my morning mentor series Mary is talking about the power of transitions and how it is so important to take the time to say goodbye to one part of life and fully welcome and accept the new part of life. 
This is very fitting for me right now because I am going through a big transition this week myself and so my morning studies are perfectly time to help me see and understand.  She talks about taking the time to say goodbye and be grateful for the chapter that is closing and the fully welcome and appreciate the chapter that is opening.
These 3 – 5 minute morning mentoring sessions are so valuable to me to keep my life moving in a forward direction. (http://athomewithheather.com/morningmentor).
Sometimes it is really hard for me to let go the resistance that I have to “What is”, but even in my own life I have found that once I welcome that what is and appreciate it, that’s when things can start to change to greater possibilities.

Heartbroken is an understatement💔 Being a foster family, we say hi and bye to kids fairly often, so I try not to get attached. But this kid...I got really attached to. The court sent them back to their mom today.And I know I should be happy for them but honestly I’m just heartbroken💔 Really hoping her mom keeps her word to keep bringing her to gymnastics🙏🏼 #crying #missingher #littlesister #hearthurts #hopefullyitsnotbye #fostersister #fosterfamily

Happy can’t really be measured but if it could be it’d probably be about the size of a Cat - we aim to make our fosters as comfortable and as loved as possible whilst they stop over with us and it really does make our home a happy one 💁🏻‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️🐈🏠❤️

This beautiful Rajasthani mirror beaded pen with cap measures approximately 4.5in (11.5cm) and writes in blue ink. This ballpoint pen was handmade in India from premium quality raw materials and finished with lacquer to protect its details.

The pen comes in 10 different brilliant color with a matching string to wear around the neck, dangling approximately 16in (40.5cm) down. What a wonderful gift, together with one of our adoption journals!

Last week we celebrated multiple birthday’s of teenagers in foster care through Project: Birthday Surprise.  We are so thankful for the gifts that had been donated, as well as those of you who financially partner with us, allowing us to supplement what’s needed to make these birthday’s impactful.  The teens we celebrated felt SEEN and LOVED and TREASURED on their very special day. We are so thankful for volunteers that go all out for these kids.  You are making a difference in the lives of the kids you serve.

Want to make your @target trip count this week?  Help us stock up a local foster closet!  One of the greatest needs foster parents have the moment they receive a placement is clothing and especially new underwear!  Many times kids arrive with only the clothes they are wearing.  A local foster closet based in Joliet, Love & Lend, helps make the first few days a little easier by providing the basic necessities for families. Grab any size underwear, socks or PJs at Target this week! Don’t forget to use Cartwheel for an extra 20% off!  Let us know if you grab some & we’ll arrange pickup. Everyone can do something!

All the appointments needed for kids in #fostercare can run anyone ragged. Visits with family, caseworkers, agencies, CASA/GAL, ad litem, etc. Then the required doctor & dentist appointments. And many kids in care also need specialists and therapists. . . . 
Our appointments are on #SeventeenDays of the month! That means there is some sort of appointment on more than half the days of the month!!! . . . 
This is exhausting! Whoever says that #fosterparents do it for the money just has no freaking clue! . . . 
HOW MANY DAYS DO YOU HAVE APPOINTMENTS???

18 years with this man, and we are still growing, changing, learning. Becoming vegans definitely came as a natural progression out of doing foster care. We had seen many  helpless children who needed a loving family and couldn’t speak for themselves.  When we saw the helpless animals being raised in horrible conditions, we knew we couldn’t ignore it.  Are we equal to animals? As Christians we don’t believe this. But we absolutely believe they were created by God and we were given the responsibility to care for them, not abuse them. Factory farming is evil, plain and simple. And since we aren’t raising our own animals to use or eat, veganism is the solution. Also, I wouldn’t want to raise animals to eat! The fact that it’s healthier for the planet and our bodies is also amazing! Others think we’re sacrificing and miserable, when really we are the happiest and healthiest we’ve ever been😊 #christianvegan #vegan #vegansofig #thisiswhatveganslooklike #creatednotevolved #fosterfamily #fostercare

Are we equal to animals? As Christians we don’t believe this. But we absolutely believe they were created by God and we were given the responsibility to care for them, not abuse them. Factory farming is evil, plain and simple. And since we aren’t raising our own animals to use or eat, veganism is the solution. Also, I wouldn’t want to raise animals to eat! The fact that it’s healthier for the planet and our bodies is also amazing! Others think we’re sacrificing and miserable, when really we are the happiest and healthiest we’ve ever been😊 #christianvegan  #vegan  #vegansofig  #thisiswhatveganslooklike  #creatednotevolved  #fosterfamily  #fostercare 
We just love the relationship we’ve built with many of the group homes here in Ventura County.  We are looking forward to more opportunities this year, to come alongside these teenagers and show them how much we are about them.

The Love I Have For My Sons...Ugh!! They Are Everything!! 😍❤

So Proud Of My Marcus. I Remember The Days When He Had Hard Transitions In School. He Would Act Out Resulting In Calls Home. These Days I Get Calls Saying That He Was The Best Behaved Kid In The Entire School That Day. And Everyone Raves About How Respectful And Well Mannered He Is. He's Exceeding Expections Academically...And So On. Remember That This Is The Kid That Doctors Cautioned Us About Adopting. They Feared That He Wouldn't Thrive Or Excel And Would Be A Challenge To Raise. Challenge Gladly Accepted. Love Wins Every Time! ❤😍

Our sweet Zoey girl is THE BEST big sister. Last week she made these Valentine’s Day pictures with our littlest kiddo. I’m proud of her for so many reasons, and her heart to love on these sweet kiddos is just one of them. I’m forever grateful God saw fit to make me her stepmom. #raisingzoey #stepmomlove #fostercare #fosterfamily

Picked up #TheOhSoGreyKittens from the spay/neuter clinic today. The clinic was overbooked Sunday so they had to stay an extra day and had their surgeries yesterday afternoon. Poor Ash was sneezing and congested when I got him back so it appears he caught a URI while there. 😡😢 Slate, Hazel, and Graycie did great and have no symptoms. Ash is scheduled to go to his forever family Sunday and we really hope this doesn't postpone his adoption day. 🤞 We will have to monitor him day to day this week before we finalize his adoption. #LasVegasFosterKittens #FosteringSavesLives #FosterFamily #FosterKitten #AdoptDontShop #SpayAndNeuterYourPets #TNRrescue #FeralSocialization #KittensAreAwesome #KittensOfInstagram #CatsOfInstagram

Don’t want to get involved in foster care because it’s too hard or too messy?  You are right...it is but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do anything.  Everyone can do something.  When you step into the mess, God will show up every single time.

We were finally given and contacted by a social worker today! Court happened last week to figure out the correct spelling of her name 🤔 and they are still waiting for her birth cert. to be completely sure. Court happens next week for commitment and we were told today Mom does want to reunite. The goal is always reunification and we support that 100% but we're at the beginning of a very long story with this love. Here's to surrounding her with love as we take one day at a time. #fosterlife #reunification #fosterfamily #fosterbabe #fostercare #babyA #whosnamenooneknowshowtospell

••Update•• since we turned in our dog evaluations, we were supposed to hear back on 2/12/18 but.... the head supervisor that approves it was out sick all week!!! So... we are still waiting!!!! Ugh! But everyone know that any part of foster care is a waiting game so we best get used to it!! Our licensor is very hopefully that we will pass! So fingers crossed🤞🏼 #fostercare #fosterfamily #waitinggame #dog #fosterlove #fosterchildren #thisisfostercare #thisisus #faith #christ #journey #help #waiting #love #perservere

I love my rescue family....always leading the way on what is right and best for the dog. Hearts of gold, I swear. 💛🐾 Thank you Nicole and family for providing Andre with the utmost love in his final months on earth. To hopefully many more walks and smiles, Andre! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Thank you Joseph and the other officers who pitched in to buy Andre his wheelchair! This past weekend he went on several small hikes and even a 2 mile hike. We are determined to make this old man's final weeks the best!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Need a little refresher on who this great ol’ Andre is?
Andre is a fifteen year old lover! @first_responders_animal_resq  pulled him from the San Jose shelter back in October when his family took him there to die. The rescue decided he deserved to die happy, loved and in a home environment! He has been part of the Loyd  pack for the past several months. Doing what is right!”
