Mike and Kristin Berry, Confessions of a Parent website

Mike and Kristin Berry

Mike and Kristin Berry have been married for more than 15 years and are the parents of 8 adopted children. In 2012, they launched the blog website Confessions of a Parent to speak hope into the lives of parents worldwide. As the site grew to reaching more than 20,000 visitors a month, the Berrys realized they needed to focus their efforts on adoptive, foster and special needs parents. In 2015, Confessions of a Parent changed to Confessions of an Adoptive Parent. Their mission is simple – to offer hope to adoptive, foster and special needs parents who feel weary, overwhelmed and frustrated, and to let them know they’re not alone. Mike and Kristin also travel extensively and speak at camps and conferences. Recently, they co-wrote the book The Adoptive Parent Toolbox. Learn more about the Berrys at their website, Confessions of an Adoptive Parent.
