Inspiring & Informative

Deena (a former social worker) is a great host, compassionate and full of integrity as she interviews former foster youth and those close to them. She keeps a close focus on the interviewee's stories, honoring their experiences. Eye-opening, thought-provoking, inspiring & educational podcast about foster care. Highly recommend.
