Our passion is to connect, equip and refresh adoptive moms on their journey.


 Meet other moms in all stages of the adoption process. Listen, laugh, cry and be encouraged by each other’s experiences. 


Gain a better understanding of the heart and needs of your children. Leave with new tools and renewed motivation for taking care of yourself and the little ones in your home.


Spend some time on a mini-mama vacation. Rest up and breathe deeply as we’re reminded of our purpose and identity in Christ.





Kim Scholten

Kim is the founder of Woven by Love and an adoptive mom and wrangler to four kiddos ages 13 and under.  She calls “The Middle of Nowhere” home with her husband of twenty years where they go for long, romantic golf cart rides on summer nights.   She has a love for sarcastic humor, green tea, label makers, Chipotle for dinner, and babysitters. Her passions include engaging the church community in matters of justice and writing about stuff that’s real and hard and worth it.

Janine Nieuwenhuis

Janine is a free spirit who infiltrated the West Michigan Dutch community when she married her husband, Luke.  During her favorite season, summer, she is most likely to be found on the shores of Lake Michigan, hair permanently pulled up, while her four children run wild and dig up “treasures” in the sand.  Janine’s deepest passion is to be a part of God’s redemptive work by empowering the poor, advocating for justice and being a voice for the voiceless.  She recently initiated a project in her daughter’s birth village with the hopes of reaching the community with the Good News of Jesus.
