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.
