Can you imagine deeply loving a child who calls you Mama, while having to remind yourself that it could all be ripped away at any moment? Today we are honoring National Adoption Month and hearing from Lindsay Laster as she shares the beautiful, yet traumatic truth of being a foster parent and about the journey to adoption.
From the CPS home visits, grounds for kin unification, handing over your child to strangers, your options when it comes to the CPS case worker, fighting for the best interests of the child, to the moments when you finally can breathe knowing this child you've fallen in love with is all yours, Lindsay's honest conversation is one you have to hear if you are considering adoption.
Lindsay shared some of her favorite resources for you below. If you are feeling called to foster or adopt or know someone who is exploring this path to parenthood, please share this episode! It means the world!
All the love, Sarah
