MORE ABOUT us
We started our journey in foster care over 6 years ago.
We went into this storm with our 3 bio children, convinced we were going to help out a handful of kids, and come out of this season unchanged.
We were very wrong.
And we are so thankful for that!
We are now a family of 9, plus a dog, and a desert tortoise, and no house plants - because there is no chance they will get any attention from us. Although we do have a thriving backyard, but that's cause Chris' idea of self care is hanging out in 100 degrees, picking weeds from the rocks, and mowing grass.
I am fostering two babies, and it's been so nice to hear all the stories, and reassuring that it's ok to not have it all together. These guys are great! They have a mixture of personal stories of people who have gone through the system, and they bring in experts. I was more informed about the court systems than my caseworker was from listening to this podcast if that tells ya anything. Lol. Check it out, it's a great listen!
I love this podcast!
This podcast is awesome, Jihae and Chris are so real, honest, and genuine! I just love hearing theirs, and others' storiesabout fostering and adoption! They truly inspire you to want to be a better person and be an active part of your community! I have had many 'AHA' moments that have changed my life for the better! Thank you for the podcast. It is truly a highlight of my day to listen to it!!
Great podcast with AMAZING people!
It is easy to discard kindness as just a suggestion, but not something that actually makes a difference. And we beg to differ on that. We think that kindness is a big piece of what is missing in society at large. Don’t overthink it. Just be kind. Give people the benefit of the doubt. Listen […]

Technology is great and terrible for our families. Millions upon millions of families have come before us with little to no technology. And they did pretty well for themselves. But here we are with too much technology and what are we supposed to do now? Todd Watson, CEO of Showit (the sponsor of our podcast!) […]

We would be so thankful if you would leave us a review!
It would encourage us, but more than that - it will help us to reach more people! We have had a number of people tell us that they started fostering, and got involved in helping others to foster, after listening to our podcast!
