Foster Leaders Talent Intro

Tamela Mann - Take Me To The King

sometimes things will get hard but we never give up, we fight harder, cry less and remember that God has divine purpose for us! When I am down I love to listen to this song it reminds me that we are human and all go through emotional turmoil.

What you do with the challenges in life is what counts. Put on a good song that soothes your soul or lets out how you feel, then move on to your greatness!

You may be at a low point in your life; no job, no place to live, maybe no food. This is when you are being tested. Think of all your talent and skill that could be making you money to pay bills and be independent! Maybe you are an artist, singer, dancer, writer, cleaner, babysitter, YEs, it takes skill to do all of these things, you have to figure out how to make your gift and talent into a cash flow!! Put on your thinking cap because giving up is NEVER an option, we are fosters and we fight until the very last breath. I want your fight to be non violent to be a mental challenge on how do I get from point A to point B, without harming myself, others or lowering my standards and abiding by the law? You can do it no matter how old you are, you can be someone great. You were born to be here!!! xo

Neville Brothers - Yellow Moon

Hi blog family!

Today my brother would be 46, unfortunately heart disease took him too soon. My birth mom also died (at 42, she outlived her son)...R.I.P to her for birthing me and to my brother for helping me get through the first 21 years of life and helping me grow as a person for 41 years of his life!

It is important to honor those that got you hear, (even if it did not work out), we all have divine purpose. Our siblings help us through foster care after a parent and family are no longer found, honor that and thank God for whatever time you have with a sibling - it will help you grow in many ways!!

To all those who lost a sibling in foster care through adoption, I imagine your pain is as deep as mine if u lived with that sibling for at least the first 5 years of your life! I will never forget my brother that died nor my brother Mark Rochester, who was adopted off around 3 years old!! NEVER FORGET and honor them by doing good for others! I am excited to help foster kids in my brothers honor! xo

Bringing good into existence with I AM

hi blog family!
I hope all is well. Life is great when you live it!
* remember the book above is at*

hope summer is awesome! The universe is moving, growing and you should be too! I am so excited for life each day I wake, why? Because I am somebody! I am not defined by foster care and foster care was my experience not my life! I am grateful, I am loving of my creator for making me, I am somebody with a dream of helping others in care!

I was reading this today, very helpful. I love Joel and Victoria, they are true inspirations, accepting nothing but the best from all of us! Are you giving and expecting the best in this life? Read below, I am grateful that I can share this with you! xo Tanya

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Have you ever considered the power of the statement, “I am”? What follows these two simple words will determine what kind of life you live. “I am blessed. I am strong. I am healthy.” Or, “I am slow. I am unattractive. I am stupid.” The “I am’s” that are coming out of your mouth will bring either success or failure. All through the day the power of “I am” is at work in our minds. Many times we use the power of “I am” against us. We don’t realize how it’s affecting our future.
Here’s the principle. What follows the “I am” will always come looking for you. The good news is that you get to choose what follows the “I am.” When you go through the day saying, “I am blessed,” blessings come looking for you. “I am talented.” Talent comes looking for you. You may not feel up to par but when you say, “I am healthy,” health starts heading your way. “I am strong.” Strength starts tracking you down. You’re inviting that into your life. Get up in the morning and invite good things into your life. Declare “I am blessed. I am strong. I am talented. I am disciplined. I am focused. I am prosperous.” And always make sure God’s truth follows “I am”!

Tamela Mann - Take Me To The King

never get discouraged! What God has for you, no man can undo!! this is my favorite song!!


Learn to live in silence and enjoy YOU and doing nothing


hi blog family!
May 28th was a success again this year thanks to my brother's friends!! some video is available on vimeo! I will share next time :)

my only advice: Work on you, everything else will follow! If you are standing still its because the universe wanted you to sit and enjoy your own silence and peace. Learn to enjoy you, even in quiet, even in pain, even in laughter, there is no one like YOU!

FosterKidsUnite, Inc. is about to be a full reality soon, thanks to my brother's great friends! I will be announcing our board members and website soon!!!
