Hello, my name is Karen and I am the creator of this tiny corner of the world wide web called The Family Blender. This blog is a creative outlet for me and a place I plan to share our family adventures as a blended family, along with easy family friendly recipes, mixed with household tips, and tricks. Hence the name The Family Blender, I be will covering just about anything!
My family is my world. I am married to my very handsome and funny best friend, Duane. Our beautiful daughter named, Lia is my biological daughter and Duane’s adopted daughter. As a family we have felt a calling to become involved in foster care. We have recently completed all our of foster care licensing requirements with our state and we are waiting for our first placement.
I have recently discovered a love for cooking. You will see lots of recipes on the blog, my goal is to share easy recipes with common ingredients and for every occasion, perfect for busy families.
I hope through blogging I can learn from other parents in the foster care world as well as educate others on the experiences of a foster parent and maybe motivate a few people along the way to become more involved. If you should have any questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
