Resource Families Thrive: Finding Why
The past year it has been so much fun as we have been able to develop our podcast with your support. We have talked to more people than I can adequately represent in a review episode, but here are some of the most powerful moments we had. All of it comes back to "Why:" why foster care, why adoption, why mentorship; and why you are ready now. Thank you for being a part of this journey with us. We look forward to bringing you more content about the things you want to learn.

Resource Families Thrive: A Home In The Holidays
Holidays throughout the year are typically focused on celebrations with family. Be it the 4th of July, Labor Day, or Christmas we spend those times celebrating with loved ones. So how do we support those kids who are currently living with someone other than their first family? How do we honor their traditions, maintain the important connections they have in their lives, and celebrate who they are? Amnoni and Daniel talk about all these points and more.

Resource Families Thrive: Adopt Experiences
As a parent recruiter, I often say "we're not looking for homes for kids. A home is walls, roof, and 3 meals a day. We're looking for FAMILIES for kids." For the second episode of National Adoption Month we're talking to two such families- people who have put in the time, energy, and patience to help a child to thrive. What they have provided to their children are relationships that last a lifetime, first experiences they will never forget, and the opportunity to flourish. Join us and hear about these parents who went from being "for now families" to "forever families."

Resource Families Thrive: Adopt Understanding
Welcome to Part 1 of our 2-part celebration of National Adoption Month. We start with a foundational understanding of what adoption really means; for this episode we are joined by two members of our organization who are experts in the area of adoption competence. It is my hope that you will be able to take some of this understanding with you as your start your foster-to-adopt journey. Stay tuned for Part 2 when you will have the opportunity to listen to the stories of a couple of families who have completed the journey of adoption.

Resource Families Thrive: Justice For All
October is Juvenile Justice Awareness month. Teens served by probation are often thought of as lost, tough, and resistant to help. The reality is they need what any other child in a system of care needs- stability and a safe place to land so they can grow and develop. This month we have the amazing opportunity to spotlight one of our programs that works directly with youth served by probation. We were also able to speak with one of our families whose focus has been not only teens, but teens with probation cases.

Resource Families Thrive: Be WonderFul
Permanency: one of our most often-used words in everything we do. Our program is pathways to Permanency. For some kids that means they have a safe person to talk to, have fun with, or just spend time with. Wonder Mentors are there to support one child in finding new experiences and building new connections, and are an important part of the Permanency team in that child's life.
