The BEST Adoption podcast!

I started listening to this podcast about 6 months ago. I had been looking for a good parenting resource ever since we adopted a newborn. Before adopting, my husband and I had attended the Empowered to Connect parenting classes. They were great! It is wonderful to have the podcast that goes along with the class. Each episode is like a quick refresher course! Chris, Ryan and Kayla are very down to earth and easy to follow. The episode about preparing your family and friends is so very good. It had me in tears. I am passing it along to all of our support people. Thank you so much for the work you do!!!
