Help One Child Mother's Day Brunch
What an honor to lead a color workshop about rest for the foster, adoptive and kinship mothers served by Help One Child. This is a tough crowd as far as rest goes! These moms are always “on”, devoting way beyond regular parenting levels of attention and energy. It is part of partnering in the healing process of children with traumatic histories, which holds both joys and challenges. Devotion and love for their children were so clearly on each face.
"Wendy created a safe, non-judgmental place where the foster and adoptive mothers we serve could explore their feelings and emotions through the medium of color. She led a creative process that was healing and restorative. Many of the women are now looking for more ways to integrate art-making into their own growth, expression, and self-care."
