We mentioned a Starbucks Christmas drink in episode 9 and later looked up what it was called (Juniper Latte), we were cracking up reading this article about it.

Turning the Tables with Teens in Foster Care

Motivating and a fun podcast that provides a joyous way to help people. I really enjoyed the Christmas episode that discussed foster parents. It’s real and will touch your heart. Not too long and easy to listen to. It’s a must add!
Love the stories and education provided. Such a powerful podcast!
Alternatives to foster care
As someone who has thought about becoming a foster mom, but unsure if I could actually commit fully to it, I found this podcast to give me some great alternatives or other ways to help foster families. One of the biggest take aways for me from this podcast is, these kids aren’t going anywhere so if not you? Then who else will help them? And that’s why I have found this podcast to be a great way to get started and to learn more about the process.
