I'm a young (ish) social worker living and working in the Big City. I work primarily in child welfare and mental health. I'm passionate about helping families - Families by Blood and Families by Choice. I regularly blog about foster care, adoption, and supporting families of origin.

These thoughts are mine alone - please do not consider them a substitute for professional, legal, or psychological help. I have altered names, places, and other identifying information in all of my posts to protect the privacy of my clients.

This blog started as a way for me to journal my experiences in social work and the ways it opens my eyes and changes my heart on a regular basis. Now, it has also become an amazing community and I am grateful to be involved!

Being a social worker isn't just what I do for a living - its who I am.
