“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” — Winston S. Churchill

Oh, hello there!

My name is Brittany, and I am the driving force behind This Brave Journey. I am a single mom to a bubbly little toddler named Ada, whom I adopted at birth. I am also a licensed foster parent and hope to eventually adopt again via the foster care system. It’s a very different journey than the private adoption I experienced with adopting Ada, and I’m looking forward to the day our forever kiddo joins our family, but am really excited to fill the fostering need in the meantime for how ever many children we welcome into our home.

Most of you know me as the maker of the Scooter Booties brand of soft sole shoes. I started Scooter Booties in 2012 and have since made over 40,000 pairs of shoes for little feet all over the world. In the Fall of 2019, I expanded my business to include a variety of products and re-branded to what is now This Brave Journey.

In my research of becoming foster licensed and learning about foster care in general, I realized that I wanted to do more than just foster. I HAD to do more. These kids need me. They need all of us. They need society to reach out, to be compassionate, to be understanding, and to help.

My “aha” moment came while packing my daughter’s backpack for daycare. As I filled it with extra clothes and a water bottle, I remembered learning that foster kids often come to you with nothing but the clothes on their back. And if they do come with anything, it is often in a trash bag. A TRASH BAG. Can you imagine? Packing your favorite toy and a few changes of clothes in a trash bag, and then being taken to live in a strangers house? My heart broke. What if we could supply backpacks and basic necessities for foster kids? And school supplies. And Christmas gifts. And super awesome experiences like horse back riding lessons or a trip to the aquarium. What would things like that mean to a child in foster care?

When you purchase from This Brave Journey, you are supporting a single mom. You put milk in my fridge and shoes on my kiddo and keep the lights on in my house. But more importantly, you are helping some of the most vulnerable youth of our society.

5% of every purchase is given back to kids currently in the foster care system.

Every purchase. Every day.

Adoption and fostering are my passion. Giving back is my purpose. Helping these kids is my reason. Follow me in my journey of becoming a foster parent, and hopefully growing my permanent family in the future. I look forward to sharing my passion with you, as well as hearing all about YOUR Brave Journey.

Peace and love,
-Britt

Shipping
Current turnaround times are in each listing. I will notify you if turn time will take longer than expected. If you need an item by a specific date, please contact me before purchasing. I am almost always able to accommodate rush orders.

Once the post office has received your package, I have no control over how long delivery will take. Packaged shipped to US addresses are usually delivered within 2-4 business days of shipment, but sometimes packages can take longer. The post office does not consider a package lost until 3 weeks have passed from date of acceptance. If your tracking shows that it is stuck somewhere, and has not been delivered for over 3 weeks, please contact me and we can go from there.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:

Please be aware your country may charge additional customs duty and/or import taxes.

Please also be aware that as the seller, I do not pay for any applicable duty, value added taxes (VAT) or import consumption taxes charged to you by your country.

The recipient of the merchandise will be required to pay the duty or VAT upon delivery. Due to import duty valuation adjustments and currency valuations, I am unable to provide an estimate for duty or VAT.

International shipping can take up to 6 weeks from date of acceptance, but most of my international customers report 2-3 week averages. If you have not received your package with 6 weeks of the acceptance date, please contact me.

FOR BOTH U.S. AND INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:

Tracking is included with every purchase. If you claim that a package was not received, but the tracking # states it was delivered, I am not responsible for replacing the item. If this happens, please check with your neighbors and other family members in your household to see if they saw or picked up a package. In the event that no one has it, my suggestion would be to speak with your mail carrier/post office directly, or file a police report for stolen property.
