About the Book

This is an excerpt including the introduction and first three chapters of the book Blessed Chaos, released in kindle and print format on November 22, 2014.

“What was it like going from no children to four children in an instant?”

Ashley Wells has answered this question countless times. Ashley, and her husband Michael, were licensed to accept a placement of up to four children aged eight and younger into their home through their local foster care system. They didn't realize these parameters would exactly describe the children God would bring into their lives.

In April 2012, after ninety minutes to prepare, Ashley and Michael became the parents of an eight-year-old boy, five-year-old girl, thirteen-month-old girl, and a two-and-a-half-week-old baby boy. Their journey included the typical “roller coaster” ride of emotions and setbacks, yet through God’s grace they persevered in the journey. On November 22, 2013 Michael and Ashley welcomed these four children into their family forever through adoption.

Releasing on their one-year adoption anniversary, Blessed Chaos: A Journey through Instant Motherhood is an inspiring memoir documenting Ashley's journey becoming a mother through foster care adoption and the lessons she learned along the way.

Blessed Chaos is written with the prayer to encourage women in the midst of their chaos, enlighten readers on the foster adoption process, and inspire people to think about how they are called to support foster children and foster parents.
