I’m in the HR area too. In the mid-process of everything. Your podcast is giving me perspective on what I (& families) am going through. Sincerely appreciate the words that are being shared in this Fostering Hope podcast! Update: met M&S from VB during a panel discussion. We were all joyful!
Super excited to listen in on your journey, as our family continues on with ours. Foster care is unlike anything I have experienced before and I can tell that your words, encouragement and insight will nourish our soul in the middle of this roller coaster. Thank you for putting into words what God has written on our hearts.
