Lisa Qualls is the mom of twelve kids by birth and adoption (and sometimes more through foster care). Thirty-five years ago she married Russ. Their adoption journey has been marked by joy as well as challenges of trauma/attachment and has led them to new ways of parenting.
Lisa is the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent to be released in 2020. She writes the blog One Thankful Mom, is the founder of The Hope Circle for Adoptive and Foster Moms, and the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a resource site and podcast.
