I’m Kait, the founder and owner of Anchor & Pineapple. I am a wife, mother and foster parent.

Anchor & Pineapple was created as a way to give back to the amazing community of people involved in foster care and adoption.  The love for these children is a unique, crazy special kind of love and I wanted to design some products to honour these special bonds. I am a firm believer that love makes a family and that every child deserves a family to love them fully and completely.

I am passionate about orphan care locally and worldwide. I have a soft spot for seeing kids join families and all the tiny miracles that happen in order for a family to be created.

A portion of each purchase will be donated to Foster Care Initiatives in Canada and the US, and Orphanages in Nicaragua ( a country near and dear to my heart).  I also hope to open an adoption grant fund in the future to help families with the tremendous adoption costs – more information on that to come.

The meaning of Anchor & Pineapple – The Anchor symbolizes stability and strength and putting down an anchor represents the safe end of a long journey.  The pineapple is the universal sign of hospitality and welcome. I couldn’t think of a better way to describe adoption.  Safe, secure and forever cared for and welcome in a family.
