Lindsey Redfern is MommyCast’s Community Manager, but she is also a wife and a mother of two little boys who constantly keep her on her toes. She is a quirky stay-at-home mom who loves french fries more than she should. Lindsey is passionate about open adoption, the miracle that formed her family. She is a mommy and adoption blogger at The R House where she educates on the hope that “adoption done right” can provide to all members of the adoption triad. Knowing how important planning and education are in adoption, she and her husband Josh started the adoption consulting firm, The R House Adoption Consultants. Working together has been a dream come true for them. Lindsey also runs a personalized, handmade jewelry company with two of her dearest friends called The R House Couture where they create “sterling silver gifts of hope” for all occasions or no occasion at all! A lover of social media, this mommy is trying to “hold the world together, one child at a time.” You can find Lindsey on Twitter and Facebook.
