    Season 3 Finale - Episode 12 - Behind the Veil of the Personal and the Professional

    Season 3 Finale - Episode 12 - Behind the Veil of the Personal and the Professional

    Behind the facade of our resilience we often find ourselves dealing with the inner turbulence that stems from the bodily and psychosocial effects of our pasts. Tune in to hear from Adrian, Maraide, and Slam in this Finale where we let you peak behind the veil of accomplishment and success for folks with lived experience in the child welfare system. Along the way you’ll get to revisit some of the major themes throughout this season, lessons learned, tips, ways to cope, and the reality of what it’s like to record a podcast with change makers, advocates, and charismatic leaders when, as Slam puts it, “Life be Lifing.”

Narrative change with openness

This show is excellent for elevating the voices of those who have experienced foster care. I learn so much every time I listen. Thank you for this platform.

Important!

As a foster parent in training, hearing the stories and experiences of these brave and resilient young people is an amazing gift. It is difficult to always know what to say and do. But these stories give a look into the impact we can make for these kids if we educate ourselves and prioritize them.

Amazing Amazing Amazing

I found this podcast on Friday evening and binge listened to all of the episodes by Monday morning. Hearing the experiences from those who were in care allowed me to confirm my decision of being a foster mom and better mentor. You all are the light in which we all strive to be in this world! #FosterStrong
