Hello! Welcome to Harbor Hope. I am Lauralee. On April 24, 2012 my life was forever changed. A handsome little man entered onto the scene in a big way. We were his 6th set of caretakers, he was our first son. Our crash course on parenting began and the learning curve was hard! There are very few easy things about bringing an older child into your home. But love abounds. Everyday I am overwhelmed by God's goodness in our lives and his grace in our failures. 
I am passionate about family. Passionate about adoption. And passionate about children, especially from foster care. This blog is about all of these things. A place to harbor hope. To share in the joys and pains of parenting and life on this crazy road we call forever family. 
Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to meeting all of you. 


Update:  On April 25 & 26, 2014 our family made a crazy unexpected jump from three to five. We welcomed a beautiful nine year old princess and cherubic 19 month old boy.  You can read all of the details here.  Life has been forever and wonderfully changed once again. :)


  1. I just found your blog from the link-up at A Wise Women Builds Her Home. We were also our daughter's sixth set of caretakers when we adopted her. I am looking forward to reading more.

    1. How old was your daughter when you adopted her? M was four. It has been a wild ride but totally worth it. So worth it in fact, we are going to do it again! :) Thanks for visiting!
