Episode 86 - The Spiritual and Missional Aspects of Adoption/Foster Care The Whole House Podcast

    • Parenting

Special guest, Sandra Flach of “Orphans No More” Podcast joins Kathleen in this episode. A few months ago, Kathleen wrote an article titled “What If We Treated Foster/Adoptive Parents as Missionaries?” She got lots of flack from non-Christians (which is understandable, to an extent), but she was shocked to also get some negative comments from Christians. So she started asking adoptive/foster parents what they thought about the subject. Then she took it a step further and created a survey that asked all the questions she was curious about. Kathleen shared it her my adoption/foster care support group, and several friends did the same. In this episode, Sandra and Kathleen share some of the results from the survey. Sandra adds her two cents garned from hundreds of interviews with adoptive/foster/adoptees. You can read a whole chapter about this topic in Kathleen’s upcoming book How to Have Peace When Your Kids are in Chaos for Adoptive/Foster Parents.
