We are so excited that we got to hang out with all of you at The Spokane Orphan Summit. If this is your first time checking out our blog, welcome! We’d like to introduce ourselves to you…


We are Mike and Kristin Berry. We’re here to help weary adoptive & foster parents find the support & validation they need to regain hope and finally stop feeling alone. We have been married almost 17 years and are raising 8 amazing children, all of whom have been adopted. In addition to being adoptive parents, we’ve also served as foster parents for 8 years.

One thing we know for sure from our 14 years of parenthood: parenting is hard. REALLY hard! And that’s especially true for adoptive & foster parents. There are incredible blessings in this kind of parenting, but there are some tough challenges too.


As a way of saying thanks for being at the summit, we have a FREE ebook for you called The Weary Parent’s Guide To Escaping Exhaustion: A Realistic 9-Day Plan To Finally Get The Rest You Need. We wrote this book because we know how difficult the parenting journey is. It can be exhausting, overwhelming and just plain defeating! The book is yours for FREE! The only thing it’ll cost you is your email address.

The most important thing we can tell you on your journey as a parent, whether biological, adoptive, foster, or special needs, is- “You’re not alone, and there is hope.” We are passionate about sharing this message with the world.

With hope for the journey,

Mike and Kristin Berry
