Description

A podcast FOR foster parents, BY foster parents. In this podcast, we will have interviews and round table type discussions with foster parents, foster kiddos, caseworkers, therapists, and just about anyone else who plays a part in the foster care system. The good, the bad, and the ugly, but focusing on the good. Advice, tips, and anything else that can help in a time of need. The main rule that we have is “no caseworker bashing”. There are problems in the system, and they can and will be addressed, but not in the form of pointing the finger at specific people.
