Lisa Qualls

Lisa Qualls is the mom of twelve amazing kids by birth and adoption (and more through foster care). Thirty-four years ago she married Russ; they had no idea the adventures awaiting them. Their adoption journey has been marked by joy as well as challenges of trauma and attachment which has led them to learn new ways of parenting and living as a family.

Lisa is a TBRI Practioner and parent coach. She writes the blog One Thankful Mom and is the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a resource site and podcast for adoptive and foster families. Her first book, written with Dr. Karyn Purvis, will be published by Harvest House in 2020.
