Keeping up with the Joneses

Penny Jones and Family In Bloom Florist

“Self care is vital when raising so many dynamic personalities.” Penny Jones on Motherhood..


Some children are born of your womb, and some are born of your heart. Penny Jones has been fortunate through both of those birth experiences. The biological mother of two (awesome!) sons, Ryan (24), and Will (22), she is also the adopted mother of three (adorable!) siblings Talia (10), Icesis (8), & Timothy (7). We were fortunate to meet them all at Cranes Roost Park on a lovely morning to celebrate Mother’s Day and honor Penny.


I asked Penny what her greatest challenge is as a mom:

“As a single mom, there just aren’t enough hours in the day. The three youngest Joneses are extremely bright and curious. They are constantly into something! (laughter).”


And your greatest adventure?

“Last summer, I drove to Tennessee with the three youngest to Nashville to meet their new family. They had never been outside of Florida. It was a blast!”


What about your most rewarding experiences?

“Watching my sons mature into adulthood!!!  Ryan, recently purchased a town home without any assistance!  And helping the three youngest heal and deal with their fears is incredibly rewarding.”


Penny Jones is also the Founder and President of The Penny Project, Inc., founded in 2014 after the brutal murder of her former foster child Tariji Gordon. You can read more and assist here.
