    Overcoming Adversity & Thriving Against All Odds with David Ambroz

    Overcoming Adversity & Thriving Against All Odds with David Ambroz

    ATTENTION: This episode touches on sensitive topics such as poverty, homelessness, parental mental illness and foster care. Listener discretion is advised.Ā 
    For my guest David and his two siblings, their motherā€™s paranoid schizophrenia brought with it poverty, violence, and instability. They traveled through New York and neighboring areas seeking shelter: they found it in train stations, 24-hour diners, anywhere warm and dry. The first 11 years of his life he was homeless, then he was placed in foster care. At first, it felt like salvation but soon proved to be just as unsafe for him.Ā 
    As a gay child, Davidā€™s coming-off age is fusrther marked by anti-gay abuse at the hands of caregiovers and therpists.Ā 
    David Ambroz is a national poverty and child welfare expert and advocate. He was recognized by President Obama as an American Champion of Change. He currently serves as the Head of Community Engagement (West) for Amazon, coordinating with non-profits and community leaders for social good. Previously he led Corporate Social Responsibility for Walt Disney Television, and served as the President of the Los Angeles City Planning Commission, and as a California Child Welfare Councilmember.
    SOME KEY POINTS
    What is home? Where is home? What people get right and get wrong about childhood poverty How to create ground-up change in foster care system How to encourage more educated, middle-class families to foster Effective ways anyone can help improve the lives of foster kids GET HIS BOOK

Ellen Gottlieb ,

Best Parenting Podcast

Anna properly named her podcast because she defines authenticity. Parents will learn so much about how to be a conscious parent in a judgment-free zone. I highly recommend it!
~ Ellen Gottlieb, Attorney and Parenting Coach

Lili Knox šŸ’œ ,

Excellent podcast

This is such a great podcast for parenting. I love the motto, raising our children, raising ourselves. One of the best trauma informed parenting podcasts Iā€™ve listened to. Also Annaā€™s calm voice and presence is wonderful in a busy and chaotic world.

emily historian ,

Amazingly helpful

I found this podcast through Dr Laura froyen (who I love and is. A Frequent guest). Itā€™s an amazing resource and Iā€™m hooked. Anna is a great interviewer and gets amazing guests- she is a great guide through self improvement in parenting! Iā€™m learning so much. My fav. Episodes have been the breathing one and the Buddhism one- both took me by surprise but I applied the ideas to my mindset right away. 10/10! Going to work my way through the archives episodes. Thanks Anna for all this work- I am benefiting
