I am known by close friends and family as Puddin. I desired to do foster care once I was married and had at least one child. I attended a church conference that highlighted foster care in one of their services. I felt so led and immediately signed up!  I initially began this blog during the licensing process in May 2012 under the name, “A Tale of Puddin, Tigger & The Blessing”. My Stinky Fairy lived with me for 18 months before transitioning to her adoptive home after much prayer and reflection. I cared for her through the end of her 2s until her early 4s. I entered in knowing I’d be a blessing but never realized how much she’d bless me. She is with a wonderful mom and dad who adopted her in early November 2014. They have allowed me to continue to be a part of her life. This blog evolved into “Yesterday, I was a Mom” in response to the many changes that occurred as a result of me loving and caring for her.

She has her own room in my heart.

  1. Hi Puddin,

    Love your blog! I recently published my first novel, “Up to the Mountains and Down to the Countryside,” which is about two foreigners teaching English in rural Hunan. Was hoping you might be interested in reading and reviewing it here. I can send you an electronic copy, if so. You can read more about it on Amazon or Goodreads. Thanks for considering!
