Rachel Lewis

I am a mom to three kids in my arms, a foster son in my heart, and five babies in heaven after enduring infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss. I’m also an adoptive and foster mom. For the past ten years, building a family has put me through the wringer, bringing both beautiful memories and difficult traumas. In the midst of it all, I’m striving to find a life worth living.

As an author, writer, and speaker, I find value in putting words to my life experiences. And by doing so publicly, I get to connect with others who can relate. Sure, our lives may turn out completely differently. And we may go through different journeys to get there. And even still . . . we can relate. Through the hard times. And through the joy.
