I am a foster Mother

Fostering is the best job I have ever done, and I feel privileged and blessed to be able to be part of these children’s lives. This job is 24/7 and 52 weeks a year – even Christmas day. The children live with us and become part of our family and I love them all. They have brought me so much joy, happiness and fulfillment, as well as challenges and sadness when they move on. No big salary or perks could ever replace the smile on a child’s face when they start to trust me and know that I won’t let them down.

The Frontline of Step Parenting

The first time I met my husband’s children- I almost vomited!!! The consequences of us not getting along were almost too huge to contemplate.   In my mid 30’s, with no children of my own and having dedicated the majority of the previous ten years to perfecting the art of self-preservation, it was a decisive moment.

With quitting her Phd. and trekking through the treacherous Andean mountains to meet one of the rarest spiritual teachers of South America and becoming a world renewed spiritual teacher herself, to also becoming an organic farmer, famous writer, mother and successful business woman, Elizabeth is definitely one of a kind. I could not help  but read all of her books in one breath and interview her, immediately! Continue reading
