On your mark! Get set! Go! Blossom never had wheels before she came into rescue. She is totally rockin' them! She thinks because she has two wheels that she's got a Harley! Shhhhh, we won't tell her any different. 😉❤️😍
Please share some love to this rockstar foster, biological, and adoptive mom, Natasha! Natasha has been a foster parent for 22 years, and her mother was a foster parent for 46 years. What a legacy ❤️ Her greatest dream would be to have a huge house with 10 or more bedrooms to foster more children. For Natasha and her family, fostering is a way of life and we can never thank her enough for her continued love + open arms. We believe in and are so grateful for you, Natasha! 👊#TNFosters#TNKidsBelong#AmKidsBelong#MeetTheHelper#FosterCare#Fosters#Adoption#FostertoAdopt#BOSSLADY

I've been a little busy the past few days welcoming our new foster dog (swipe for more pics).
Please say hello to little Cherry Pie. She is a 5 month old red & tan kelpie.
Cherry was found all alone, badly malnourished and with a badly broken leg. The leg has now healed and she'll be up for adoption once she is desexed.
What a precious girl she is too....sweet natured and smart as a whip.
Not adopted?? Zales Pup Granite and his brother Perry are the final two pups from the Zales litter that are still waiting to find their forever homes. Just look at that little face! Apply online to adopt today at www.labsandmore.org.
Un petit Bonjour d'Amonet en pleine séance de sieste !
N'est-t- elle pas craquante ? 😍
Et pourtant elle n'a pas encore fait fondre le coeur d'une famille !
Amonet est une magnifique chatonne blanche et grise.
Elle est câline, joueuse et plutôt calme... sauf si un de ses frangins s'avise de toucher à SON griffoire 😂
Elle ne pourra faire que le bonheur de sa future famille.
Venez la voir !

All my kittens are going to be going to the vet from here on out to make sure they’re healthy before rehoming them. Donations would be wonderful to help with the vet and supply cost. You can donate supplies, or simply drop a few dollars on my go fund me. Anything helps. Each person who donates will be entered into a cat/dog gift basket giveaway. Whether it’s only $2, or $10.. Thank you, it means the world to me.. https://www.gofundme.com/5oxk4i0
This post was supposed to be about my daughter’s awesome new shoes from @mooshoesla but instead as an adoptive mother of two amazing teenagers who joined us as a toddler and a preschooler, I’m asking you to please contact your elected officials and beg them to reunite the 2000+ children being held in detention with their families immediately. Being exposed to trauma and being without family as a young child are incredibly detrimental to brain development,
causing permanent and irreversible changes. These children will all suffer the consequences of this terrible policy, as will their future generations. If you aren’t in the US, please call your own representatives, because what our government is doing is likely illegal. (Thanks for reading) #vegan#veganfamily#veganmama#veganteen#adoption @moby
If you, like many others, have been looking for ways to actively help refugee children, please join us this Thursday, June 21st at 6pm for an emergency information meeting on our Transitional Foster Care Program!
I wrote this 3 years ago, but it bears repeating.
From the shelter animals:
Yes I am dirty, but there was no one who cared enough to bathe me.
Yes, I have some fleas, but I couldn't get them off by myself.
Yes I am skinny but no one fed me.
No, I am not potty trained right now (but I am capable); no one would let me inside so I could learn.
Yes, you might find poop in my cell but what am I supposed to do? I have to eat, sleep, and potty in the same space.
Yes, I may cower in the back of my cell, but harsh hands have hurt me in the past, and I don't yet know your intentions.
Please look beyond the things I cannot control and see me for what I am. A living, breathing, God-designed creature who is eager to learn and please you, wants to be safe from the elements, fed, and feel the touch of gentle hands.
Like you, I am more than my exterior. Please don't judge me, see the heart within.

Over 30 years ago as a preschool aged child, I was quite suddenly abandoned by my birth father. Very soon after this occurred, my baby brother was removed from our home and did not return. Eventually, I too was removed from my home, and separated from my birth mother. Although I was adopted into a stable and loving family who made the transition as seamless as humanly possible, I am *still* dealing with the effects of that trauma, and have seen its far reaching negative impact all throughout my life.
So don’t you dare tell me these kids are ok, or that it’s exaggerating to call what’s happening to them abuse. These kids are most definitely NOT ok. They will never fully be ok again. Even if we released them all tomorrow, the negative effects of what we have done to them will follow them for the rest of their lives. Science has been able to show us that the trauma of separating a child from their biological parent, even temporarily, permanently alters their brain in ways we cannot avoid or repair.
It’s important to note that crossing the border in order to make an asylum claim is NOT illegal. That being said, actually crossing the border illegally is a only a misdemeanor crime under the law. If you believe that a desperate parent committing a *misdemeanor* means that their innocent child deserves to have their brain permanently altered, and deserves to face inescapable negative effects of trauma for the rest of their life? Then we don’t disagree on politics, we disagree on basic morality. #familiesbelongtogether
I am an Introvert preferring to "fly under the radar" and not call attention to myself.
God wants to stretch us by putting us into situations that make us a bit uncomfortable to enable growth.
Being a multi racial family has certainly attracted more attention than I like... but I do love sharing my story how God blessed us with this incredible little girl. 💗
