KellyH  Love Jesus + my full quiver. ❤️Founder of #PghMomtourage and #fosterloveproject.

Mama + Papa arrived, popsicles were made & consumed, flowers were planted, tree-house building commenced & a zillion hours spent outside. A perfect start to a holiday weekend! ☀️

We came. We saw. We climbed. We rested. We ate. We walked. We trolley'd. We uber'd. We ferried. We talked. Getting away takes all sorts of magical pieces to come together. But do it. Respite is so vital for the renewing of our souls. ❤️

If you visit New Orleans, I highly suggest staying at an Air BnB in the quaint Algiers Point! It's quiet, easy access to the French Quarter and has the best coffee shops & cafés just around the corner. ☕️

Today consisted of fascinating people + raft watching at the #bayouboogaloo festival, the best root beer float I've ever tasted, hanging with Andrew's brother + so much live music. Good day, #NewOrleans, thank you!

Crossing a city off my bucket list and enjoying an early 13th anniversary celebration! Hello, New Orleans. You're quaint, historic, fun and delicious! (If you saw my stories, we basically ate our way through the French Quarter. 😆)

So thankful the rain held off for our annual mother's day bike ride! It's our first summer with all independent riders and they did a great 7 mile first ride. We only had one kid run into another one time and only had to tell them to stay to the right 782 times (approximately). 😆

I am grateful for the privilege to walk alongside each of these sweet souls. They have changed me in every way. I'm also thinking of Jamir & Mya's first mom and the loss she is feeling today. I'm thankful for their grandmas & aunties who have played such significant roles in their life and for their siblings. I'm very thankful for my mom and Andrew's mom, both of whom we are excited to see in the next few weeks! I'm thankful for each of the women God has placed in my life, whether moms or not, who continually encourage me in this journey. I'm thankful for my husband who allows me the breaks when I need them and reminds me that the little days are fleeting. I'm thinking of friends who desire to be moms, foster moms who have said goodbye to children, those who have lost children or their moms and for whom this day is a painful reminder of loss. We anticipate the day where God makes all things new. 💖
Happy Mother's day! 🌸

First Pirates game of the season! ⚾️ It was a great one with an 11-2 win + seeing @cutchtwenty2 back in town. 👍 Thanks to Pirates Charities, we were able to take 125 foster + adoptive friends for @fosterloveproject. ❤️

Dress To Impress Day for spirit week at school? He is ON IT! 😍

I spy my handsome guy in the sky! 🌳 This guy could not have been sweeter and more huggy at his school mother's day celebration. 😍 I do not take for granted that one of these years I might not be cool enough for public hugs. 🤷🏻‍♀️ So I will soak them up while I've still got 'em. 😉

We had a great time representing @fosterloveproject at an adoption event at the zoo today. The elephants were extra entertaining! 🐘 Luckily, Andrew had his favorite umbrella along after it started raining. ☔️😉 ☔️

When I met my friend @emjthornton (who happens to be an international adoptee), I had no idea how special that friendship would become for us. And I definitely had no idea that she was friends with Angela Tucker (who created the documentary #Closure). But today, through @fosterloveproject we were so thrilled to be able to bring Angela to Pittsburgh to host an adoption workshop. We were excited to have more than 100 parents come to hear the vital voices of these adult adoptees and we're so grateful to @angieadoptee, Emily & @onlybigdreams for graciously sharing their stories. We adoptive parents benefit so much from hearing their experiences. It was a beautiful event!
