2017 Trenches Speaker

Maralee Bradley has been a mother to 23 kids over the last 12 years:  17 group home kids, 3 children adopted from foster care, 2 biological kids and 1 internationally adopted child.
She is passionate about loving kids for hard places and equipping others to love them well, too.  This passion expresses itself in her writing at amusingmaralee.com and has been featured on sites like ScaryMommy, The Mighty, & The Forgotten Initiative.  She has also been profiled in The Washington Post.  Maralee has provided content for Christian radio stations across Nebraska and the nationally syndicated television program, “MomsEveryday.”  This is  on top of her day job raising six kids, facilitating support, education and advocacy for foster parents through her partnership with Christian Heritage Foster Care.
Maralee knows that she can’t personally raise every child who needs a home (at least that’s what her husband keeps telling her), so she is excited to provide encouragement, support and resources to those who are on this same journey.
