9: Kids At Ground Zero

Update: 2019-11-133


This week, we talk about the variety of ways that children are affected by the opioid crisis. Also, Stephanie has a breakdown because it’s hard to accept the things you cannot change. In this episode, she sits down with Peter who describes the process of adopting three kids born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome; The Seattle Times’ Claudia Rowe who gives an overview of how this epidemic is impacting kids in the foster care system; and Kendra Cram and Ryan McGraw from Minford Elementary in Ohio, who have created a program that addresses social and emotional learning for kids who have been impacted by trauma.

I have lost two siblings, not to opioids, but unexpectedly and young(ish). I mean, I'm there youngest so they're all old compared to me, ya know? So yeah, life seriously sucks when you lose a brother or sister. Unless you are actually old, it just isn't natural and probably isn't natural even then. I love your podcast and my daughter is recovering from addiction (7 years)
