fostermama Today we officially will sell this beloved home... it’s never been so emotional to let go of a place I have lived.  I used to move every year and this is the longest house I have lived in and for sure the one I have put the most of my heart and soul into... physically and emotionally.  All my babies came home from the hospital to this place I was called to buy for “some sort of ministry” at the time.  I had no idea God had foster care and this miracle journey in mind when he called me to buy it.

It has served us SO well and have had the best neighbors and experiences in this house that we will never forgot ❤️ •

fostermama The day Theo officially became a Moore❤️ I’ll never get tired of watching this. This day was a whirlwind. We were so thankful to have so many dear friends and family there for Theo. We were asked if we wanted to be part of the Mother’s Day adoption event. To witness over 20 women legally become a mother to their foster children was incredible. I can’t imagine all the hurt that was experienced before this day, but praying for healing of everyone involved.Thank you @agvideography for capturing Theodore’s adoption day. ❤️

fostermama Foster care and adoption come with such a mixture of opposite feelings. You can feel two emotions at once. When my kids were placed in my care my heart broke for what they have experienced yet praising the Lord for their safety and a season to heal. On adoption days it was painful to think of the reason why we were at the courthouse. In a perfect world there wouldn’t be a need for foster care and they would be able to grow up with their biological parents. But on adoption day we are rejoicing that they officially have a forever family and a fresh start. I’m thankful for the redemption in my kids’ lives and for second chances.

fostermama It’s amazing how well these kiddos are handling the transition... we have been totally off schedule and without our nanny this past week, so lots of change and different mamas helping me out to make it all happen.  They greet each with a smile and I feel like it’s been pretty fun for them to get to spend so much time with their friends! •
We still have almost a week before we make it into the new house and a week after that a transition to our new and long term nanny.  So still more big changes to come, but these three are why I work so hard and they really seem excited for it all!

fostermama She’s already into all the girly things... dolls, hair, shoes, clothes, etc! And most of all, she’s clearly the caretaker of the three kids.  She wants to be just like mama and it’s just precious 💕. I love how she takes care of her brothers and is a lil mama herself!

fostermama If you’re considering being a single foster parent but worried that others may not understand your story.  They may not! People will stare and wonder why you have so many kids, why they don’t look like you (or each other), and where is your wedding ring?? 💍 So many things said and unsaid. But don’t let these people’s thoughts and assumptions stop you. I say this because it used to bother me too. But you have this amazing opportunity to stand in the gap for these children when they literally have no one. Yeah sure Debra at the grocery store may have her preconceived notions about you, but that isn’t your problem and not something you should hold onto. If you have a pull to foster, there is a reason for that. Say yes when it’s hard and when others don’t get it or understand. ❤️

fostermama Tomorrow is this little guy’s adoption day. We are thrilled to make him legally part of our family and to have brothers grow up together, but it is also bittersweet. In a perfect world there wouldn’t be a need for foster care and all children would be raised by their bio parents. It breaks my heart for what the boys have lost. The trauma won’t end on adoption day and they will have questions as they grow. This aspect of adoption isn’t lost on me. But tomorrow we will be rejoicing that Matthew will be out of foster care and have a forever relationship with his brother. Thankful for the redemption in their stories.

fostermama Grayson, 
You changed my life forever and made my lifelong dream come true of being a mama.  Without you, I wouldn’t get to be a mama to your precious siblings.  You bring me more joy than I ever expected and I am beyond grateful to have watched you grow and learn these last three years.  You have the sweetest heart, unmatchable determination, and the cutest giggle.
•
Happy Birthday my sweet boy!! 💙

fostermama 💥TRUTHFUL THURSDAY: THE MOON IS ROUND EDITION💥
You may have seen this tattoo on my bicep, it’s a crescent moon with the words “the moon is round” on it. Let me tell you the story behind it. I heard this story ten years ago at a summer camp and it has changed my life
🌙
🌙
A young girl had cancer and she passed away from it and in all her journals she had the phrase “the moon is round” written in it and her parents couldn’t figure out what that meant. Finally they found another journal where she explained that she saw God like she saw the moon. The moon is always there. It’s always round, but usually we only see the complete full moon once every 29 days. The rest of the time it’s in the shadows, but still fully round and complete even if we can’t see it. She saw and understood God and life the same way. S/he is always there, but it’s not often that we get the
full picture. There is always more to the story than we can see. We get glimpses of the full picture and pieces of clarity along the way but rarely do we get the full picture of things—despite the fact that God is always there and the whole picture is always present.
🌙
🌙
I have clung to this phrase for ten years now. There is always more than I know. The story is always bigger than I can see. Clarity is always coming back around.
🌙
🌙
This week has been one of the hardest weeks of my life. We don’t have the full picture. Life is insanely messy and hard. I’m taking solace in the fact that the moon is always round, God is always near, and some day I really will get the full picture.

fostermama Foster Family Update: FRUSTRATED. 
It's been 10 weeks since we submitted our application for approval. Every box was checked, all the paperwork and documentation was there.

Today we got an email with a list of documentation to provide... you know the stuff we sent in 10 weeks ago🤣😂 sooooo I'll be scrambling to get that done today and choose be be excited that someone is finally looking at it... rather than annoyed that its been sitting there for weeks in the middle of a foster care crisis.

I've heard you have to give DFCS a lot of grace.. I just thought it would start a little later. Getting our practice in early.

Also, prayers would be appreciated, once we get approval things tend to move fast... or super slow... who freaking knows🤷‍♀️ #thisisfostercare

fostermama 220 days ago, we were “introduced” to the sweetest 2 year old little girl. 146 days ago, all parties were advocating that you be placed in our home to be adopted by our family. 105 days ago, we began transitioning you into our home. 80 days ago, you were officially “placed” in our home. Just 9 days later, we were cautioned that you may be moved to a different home/family. But GOD had different plans for you, for us! How we came to become a family is soooo divine. It had to be orchestrated by none other, than GOD himself! We were soon informed that we have been moved over to “adoptions”. .
.
.
Tonight, we completed the paperwork to officially retain an attorney to finalize your adoption!!! Tomorrow, we will submit it. .
.
.
Everyday from here on out, you will be my daughter & I, your mother. You will have the everlasting support of a loving father. You will have the protection of 3 brothers & they will finally know what it means to have a sister who “ain’t playing no games behind them”!!! You have BLESSED our lives in soooo many ways. It’s makes me emotional just thinking about it. .
.

You have added so much more “Kolor” to our lives. We love you. We love you. We love you. 💛🧡💜💖💚❤️ Welcome home Kolor Alexandria Gray.

fostermama Our big boy, Kahlin, decided all on his own to cut all of his hair off. I’m happy to see him making decisions for himself & deciding on his own who and what he wants to look like.  He definitely looks more mature now. We got little man on our hands... an entire gentleman. I can’t believe he’s already 6 years old. We love him soooooo much! 💛

We are so glad that mama and baby are also a part of our monthly classes for teen moms and for the opportunity to strengthen their family! * * fosterparent #fosterparents #fosteryouth #fosterkids #fostermom #fostermama #fosterfamily #fostercareadoption #fosterbaby #fostercareadventures #fosterlove #fosteradopt #thisisfostercare #fostadopt #jamesstorehouse #ittakesavillage #fosterchildren #fosterswell #agedout #newburypark #fostercare #communityovercompetition #fosterteens #fostering #venturacounty #thousandoaks #DonateYourSmallTalk #sparkkindness
fostermama THIS IS FOSTER CARE // At 10:30 this morning a social worker showed up at our door to pick up our foster daughter. By the door stood all her belongings that we've collected over the last seven months. Blankies, Toys, Clothing. We placed them all in the social workers car and then gave our sweet girl our final goodbyes. I placed her securely in the car seat and gave her one last kiss. Chris and I walked slowly back home and didn't speak for the next hour.

Guys this part sucks. Placing your child who you've loved for the past seven months in a car to leave and never come back is not normal.

But this is foster care. We take these sweet children into our home less than 24 hours after receiving a call. We love them with everything in us. Sometimes we get to adopt. Sometimes they get reunified but we get to still be a part of their lives. But sometimes it's just goodbye.

With tears in my eyes I can still say it was worth it. Providing her somewhere safe for the last seven months was worth it. Those in foster care need a family that will love them with everything. Chris and I are blessed to have a strong support system. Our family, friends, and church help us care for our foster babies so well. We are so thankful for all of you.

Please pray for our family during this transition. Pray for Alexandra who has no idea what is going on but will be asking for her sister later today. She will wake up tomorrow and ask again. It'll been a hard transition but again it was worth it.

fostermama Our visions CAN become reality.

Growing up, I remember times when my bed was a mattress on the floor with no sheets. I remember a time when I had lice... I repeat.. LICE, for 6 months. Yep. (More on this in my memoir that I’m writing...) I remember a time when I was so ashamed of our living circumstances that not a single friend was invited to my home, yet I longed to have a house like my friends where they could sleep over, my mom would make us dinner and we would laugh and play and not think of anything other than the boys we had crushes on. #butthatwasntlife

By the time I was 15 and experienced living in my second foster home, I began to see life could be different. My first foster home brought luxuries like a working phone and comforter on the bed. But foster home #2 was another world. One that I’m grateful I got to experience, if it was only for one year.

It was in that foster home, I saw pristine, clean living. A beautiful backyard. The most luxurious bed a child could lay on. Soft linens. Beautiful rugs. T-H-I-N-G-S yes. But things that I would not ever have dreamt up for myself in my previous home environments.

Fast forward to now. I’m a life coach. And one of the things I work tirelessly with women on is cultivating a vision that equally electrifies them while terrifying them just a bit. We have to want what we want so badly that we are scared out of our minds by it. We are scared it may never happen or that we can’t do it or that we aren’t good enough for it or that it just isn’t in our cards. THAT’S exactly the kind of energy that signals that we have hit the sweet spot with our visions. That they feel so big that we aren’t sure we will ever make it happen.

And of course that’s the part where mega thought work comes in to MAKE. IT. HAPPEN. And it takes time. A whole heaping amount of time.

I share this because these photos here represent the home of my childhood dreams. There were more reasons why it wouldn’t happen than why it did. But together, with my incredible husband, we developed a shared vision. And we made it happen. (Scroll for pics that inspired us!) Here’s to cultivating the wildest visions for ourselves. Let’s do this! 🙏

fostermama Got a lot on my heart tonight. Do you ever feel like, when you have something big going on, that everything seems to go wrong at the same time? I believe that when we are working towards God’s calling for us, and are growing closer to Him, that the devil comes to ruin those plans. He tries to cause doubt in us. 
I have so many fears about what life will look like soon. The system is flawed. The children are broken. Families are hurting. I do not feel qualified to handle the situation that I am willingly inserting myself in. Why did I think that I could take this on? 
I’ve been reading a lot of people’s stories that are in the trenches of their foster care journeys, and I am not going to lie. It’s terrifying to hear what is happening in their lives because of what these kids have been through. I just keep telling myself that I can do this. I have a huge support behind me. & like anything in my life, I know that God won’t give me something that I can’t handle. .

fostermama Sometimes...after the fussing and redirecting, after staring blankly wondering what to do about xyz, after dealing with meltdowns and time out, time in and praying for guidance...the answer, as simple as it seems, is ice cream.

With rainbow sprinkles of course.

Eat the ice cream and start again tomorrow. Snuggle the little bit and start again tomorrow. Even when the frozen love is dripping down their face and into their shoes, give them a bubble bath and start again tomorrow. Laugh, cry, shake your head...and start again tomorrow.

fostermama I use to step on my scale multiple times per day, feeling literally as though my worth was tied to the number. Why do we do this to ourselves?! My weight would fluctuate so much throughout the day that I’d be happy one moment and two hours later, totally depressed and frustrated with myself. All because of a number. I don’t do that nonsense anymore. We are worthy, always. Not just when the scale drops 5 lbs. I weigh myself maybe once a month now and I measure my fitness success based on energy, how my clothes are fitting, endurance and strength in my workouts, etc. ✌🏽peace out scale...you may have controlled me in my 20s but my 30s are all about doing life better✌🏽

fostermama “Bibiana” had her first visit with bio-mom since coming into care. Mom sent babygirl back to us with a large duffel bag full of clothes. Baby’s caseworker mentioned a few things that bio-mom was concerned about. Ironically I’m glad to hear she had concerns. I’d be concerned if she didn’t. I get it though. There’s only so much reassurance you can give someone, who haven’t a clue where there child is & who’s taking care of her. I told caseworker to let mom know that we empathize with her and are available to talk with her at her leisure. With that being said, I gave caseworker the “okay” to give bio-mom our google number. I mean, afterall, “Bibiana” now has two moms (at least for the time being). This mom over here is nobody’s enemy. I here for  the baby, but am available to bio-mom as a beacon of support whenever she wants. .

Guess I’ll go ahead and start a journal for mom to read on “visit days”... just letting her know how baby is doing and how each week has gone, for however many weeks we have her. She’s our fourth placement & just like all of the others, we love her already!

fostermama Baby Girl (who is not really a baby anymore) is growing so much, and cutting more teeth, all at the same time.⁣
#doozy⁣
⁣
We have found Copaiba essential oil to be a tremendous help with teething and soothing sore gums and little jaws. 🦷👶🏼⁣
As I was reading through my Trenches book (designed and created by our oil team, for our oil team), I found a section on growing legs, and it said to massage Copaiba and a carrier oil onto legs and feet.⁣
⁣
✨PERFECT!✨ I whipped up a little roller with Copaiba and Lavender (for extra soothing and calming) and added fractionated coconut oil, so that we can use the roller on growling little legs AND sore little jaws.⁣
#twoinone⁣

If you’re a parent or parent-to-be and you aren’t on our team yet (which doesn’t mean you have to sell anything, by the way), I’ve got a few of these books on hand and would love to give one to you, when you grab a starter kit! 🌱 💧 ⁣
Click the link in my bio or send me a message to grab that kit, and I’ll send one of these lifesaver books your way!⁣

fostermama 6 of us went to the store yesterday and we scored a seat cart! (Idk what the real name of these are 🤷‍♀️)
I’ve tried to to go out to stores regularly with all the kids, even if we just pick up some bread and milk or something so they get used to being in public. At first this was downright nuts because one would just take off running with no warning and I would have to run after them with a cart full of babies and holding another ones hand... quite the site! And once Sunny grabbed an apple right out of a bin and started eating it so that was great. Now they do much much better and we actually have some fun when we run errands. 
We get a lot of stares when we go out. I know we look like a circus and that probably isn’t going to change so I just try to brush off the stares. Some people comment or ask questions and I’ve found that I’m not annoyed by it at all. The questions are usually coming from a good place and even though I don’t share that they are in foster care (because that’s not really anyone else’s business) I like to show off my babies. It’s good for my kids to learn to be kind and polite. The other day Ben, the oldest, started up a conversation with a cashier and I was BEAMING with pride! Such a great kid! Anyway we’re all learning to be out in public and it’s so great to not feel home bound anymore 👍🏻

fostermama When you start a new treatment...your #detoxing and #herxing...and you need natural support STAT ⬆️⬆️
.
.
I learned the power of alkalime last year when I got altitude sickness and GRATEFUL. This is my natural non toxic alka seltzer gold substitute that helps me SO MUCH with getting flare relief🙌🏻
.
.
Our bodies thrive when our pH is balanced (which is between 6.0 and 7.5 on a scale of 0-14). This means we need to have the right amount of acidity and the right amount of alkalinity. The problem is, most people’s diets are highly acidic. Go alkaline! Some examples of alkaline foods includes leafy greens and other veggies - not nearly as exciting as bread and sugar. 😉  Surprisingly, Lemons are extremely alkaline-forming in the body. (Hello, Lemon EO in the water!) Supplementing lemons into your diet can support your digestive system, ignite your metabolism and neutralize excess acids 🍋
.
.
This is why I always travel with alkalime (which also contains lemon!) Alkalime gives me energy, supports my digestive system BIG TIME, supports my blood sugar, is great for my immune system, and helps support detoxing/herd symptoms for me minus the junk!
.

Have you tried alkalime ? ⬇️⬇️⬆️

fostermama Yesterday was a hard day. If I’m being honest, there have been more hard days over the last 3 1/2 months than good days. This sweet boy is so adorable and I love him more than I ever thought I could. But he is exhausting. His constant crying and screaming tires me out. Every. Single. Day. And yesterday, it caught up to me😭 I cried so much yesterday and told my husband I don’t know how I can survive another second of the screaming. Why are we doing this? What did we get ourselves into? All the fear and doubts about foster care and taking care of a baby who hasn’t had an easy start to life, hit me like a ton of bricks. I’ve never felt more unequipped as a mom in my entire life. And then this morning, he finally fell back asleep and God reminded me how much he needs me right now. How all it takes is my hand on his precious little face to calm him down enough that he can finally sleep. How all he needs when his nervous system is so out of whack, is for mama to hold him and snuggle him so he feels safe and secure. I know I didn’t birth him. I know he has a mama who loves him in a way I won’t ever be able to. But right now, God has blessed me and called me to be his mama. And even on the hard and exhausting days when I don’t think I can go another second, I feel so honored and blessed to love him and to be his mama. When I have doubts and fears about how I’m not strong enough to do this, God reminds me with his little hand touching mine, that just being here with him is everything he needs. Thankful His mercies are new every morning! And-I’ve never wished more in my life that I could drink a cup of coffee🤣☕️

fostermama I have a lot of love for all the beautiful adoption signs and quotes you see everywhere. However, It’s heavy on my heart to honor that this child is loved from every direction and by many people. Especially the two families that call her daughter, granddaughter, niece and cousin. 
It will be one of my most important jobs to let her be exactly who she is. To never hold back pieces of her, but to love her for every single part. I have no idea how to perfectly navigate the life of an adoptive mom. I don’t know how to perfectly navigate anything actually! But I educate myself the best I can and I’ll keep learning so that I can be the mother she needs me to be. 💕

fostermama Lapping up all those sweet, holiday days we get with our OG baby ✨
.
Yesterday, T & I found a rare unicorn🦄... we found ourselves with only one kid 😂👧🏽 Can’t remember the last time we both got to spend time doting and loving on our girl ~ what a beaut day it was, watching her shine under our our undivided attention and affection.
.
We spent the morning pampering ourselves with a chop of her luscious locks, fresh nails, brunch and ALL the yarns (kid legit never stops talking 😂). And finished our day off with a walk/play along the water front with our fave guy/instahusbo/dada. A day so good it’s got me praying for more like these, where our hands and hearts can give our girl all the love, fun and crazy she needs.

We really are the luckiest to love and be loved by our Sweet Dee 💕

fostermama We’d love for you to meet Kim Demery (far left). She is an incredible woman, seasoned foster mom, and we had the great privilege of presenting her with a donated Lincoln Navigator! Not only does Kim have a disabled son who requires 24 hour care, she also is a relative caregiver to her three grandchildren, and is a foster mom to two boys and a five year old little girl. She was unable to take the three year old sibling as well because she didn’t have a reliable car that was big enough to take them, plus the three year old little girl to Children’s Hospital each week for her medical condition. Now Kim and all the children have safe transportation and the siblings can be reunited! A special thank you to our friend Rose MacKay (far right) from Resource Children’s Reserve for helping us select this wonderful family!
