Other People’s Children

A journey about becoming the mother to more than forty children!

Robin,  a mid-thirties woman, has all the answers on proper parenting.  It doesn’t take long, however, for Robin to realize that her perfect parenting ideas and reality often collide as she is thrust into the roles of step-mother, adoptive mother, and foster mother.

As Robin navigates the unchartered waters of motherhood, she is forced to deal with the baggage, idiosyncrasies, unique personalities, and special gifts of each child who crosses her path.  In the process, she discovers that not only is there is no “one size fits all” method of parenting, but that God does, indeed, does have a sense of humor.

In spite of the challenges she and her husband, James, face, they are determined to become the children’s strongest advocates in a flawed system which often fails the very victims it is designed to protect.

The journey is often frustrating and heartbreaking, but these foster parents are resolved that for whatever time they have children in their care, the children will know they are safe, protected, and loved by God, as well as their foster parents.

Other People’s Children is the heartwarming, fictional account based on the author’s experience as a foster, adoptive, and step-mother.

What if you were given the chance to rekindle the flame with your first love? What happened to all those girls who were mean to you in school? Should Hannah Jensen take the chance of attending her high school reunion to find out?

Hannah hasn’t been back to her hometown in more than twenty years. Now, a widow, raising a teenaged daughter, she has the opportunity to go home for her twenty-fifth high school reunion. The invitation to the reunion stirs up a lot of old memories at the same time she is dealing with loneliness, the challenges of single-parenting a teenager, people who want to “set her up” with eligible men, her own insecurities, and her eccentric family.

The story interweaves the present with scenes from Hannah’s past and her fantasy of “happily ever after” with her high school boyfriend in a humorous and entertaining manner. Her feelings from being “shunned” by the cool kids resurface as she reflects back on her time as a teenager. There are several roadblocks on Hannah’s journey from a teenager through her present. The growing pains and amusing situations in which she finds herself are ones to which we all can relate. As she walks the path of self-discovery, she also discovers the most important life lesson of all–her relationship to God.
