These are my friends, Russ and Lisa Qualls. Pete and I had the privilege of meeting them while they were on their journey to adopt from Ethiopia...and hen again IN Ethiopia! They are incredibly NICE people - the kind you truly believe do not even have a single mean thought?!?
In Lisa's own words from her blog, www.onethankfulmom.com :
"I'm the mother of twelve by birth and adoption. Thirty years ago I married my true love. Once lost and now found, I've been brought to my knees by grace. I am passionately devoted to healing my children who came to me with broken hearts. Join me on the journey.
I am One Thankful Mom."
And here is their BEAUTIFUL family...
Lisa's ministry is quite simply sharing her life, being loving and authentic while she consistently encourages other parents on this crazy journey we call parenthood. She starting blogging in 2006 and here is a taste of the blessings, her Top Twelve Favorite Blog Posts:
