Hey y’all! I’m Lauren and it’s so nice to meet you! I’m married to my college sweetheart and am a mama to four precious children. Three of my children are here with me and one is in Heaven. Our second child passed away shortly after birth. My husband, Tommy, and I have adopted two girls out of foster care, and we are constantly learning how to be the best parents to all of our kids with their special needs. About a year after our son passed away, I launched Project Gabriel in honor of our son to reach women who had also lost a baby. In my free time, I love cheering on the Tennessee Vols, expressing my love of Tennessee falls, being outside, blogging, and wearing boots. I blog at Adventures of Jack and Me. Also check out my organization Project Gabriel.
