Great resource

I’m starting the adoption process and this podcast has been a really helpful resource. It’s helped to set some of my expectations around trauma and special needs. Mike and Kristen speak with wisdom, experience, and pastoral hearts. This is the first resource I recommend to families who are exploring adoption.
