Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
    when it is in your power to act.

-Proverbs 3:27

Hey friends! Welcome back for another episode of the Fostering Voices podcast. This week we were late putting up this episode as we normally put them out on Saturday mornings before 9am. BUT, we did a keynote presentation at the Foster Arizona annual Gala, and that was on Saturday night, so we chose to release […]

This episode features our precious eldest child, Lily, who is almost 12, and has been a foster sibling since she was 7!

Episode 49: Interview with a Foster Sibling

March 16, 2019

Traveling as a foster family! We went to Rocky Point, Mexico for Fall Break (something that happens here in Arizona. We get 2 weeks off in October, and it’s the best!) We opted not to travel with our 5 month old, because – it’s the beach. Not the best place for a fair skinned sand […]

Episode 32: Traveling With, Or Without, Your Foster Child

October 16, 2018

This week’s episode is a short one! We read somewhere that most people like to tune un for 20-30 minutes. So, we are giving it a shot! This can’t be our norm, since we interview people, and we want to hear as much of their stories as possible. But when we can, we will try […]

In our time as parents, we have ‘raised’ 0-4 year olds for the last 11 years. The full count would be 7 kids for 3 months or more. We’ve done the newborn thing six times, we’ve done the toddler thing five times, and we’ve also done the two toddlers who were 14 months apart or […]

Episode 24: Surviving the Early Years

August 18, 2018

Welcome to Season 2 of the Fostering Voices Podcast! We had an amazing 5 weeks off (even though I foolishly thought we only needed 2 weeks off). We are back, totally refreshed and ready for a new season, new guests, new listeners, and new foster adoption topics! We are actually recording this episode in our […]

Episode 21: Lion, Witch, Wardrobe

July 28, 2018

Today’s Show Notes are going to be very simple and straight forward. We answered the random question: “What was your favorite Saturday Morning Cartoon?” Jihae said “Bo Knows”, which apparently was just a commercial. What she meant was “ProStars” with Bo Jackson, Wayne Gretzky, and Michael Jordan. Chris said Bugs Bunny, and Fraggle Rock, but […]
