A Fist Fight With Santa
You guys, today’s guest is full of stories that are encouraging, loving, and hilarious. When I first heard about Whitney Hollingsworth, I knew I needed to meet her, she sounded like my type of person. We attempted to connect quite a few times over the last year but something about 10 kids between us, working, wifing, kept us apart. So when it was time to slow down during quarantine we were finally able to find a coordinating time that would work for both of us. Whitney has not only been a foster parent for 9 years but she has a super unique perspective because she has been employed by the Department of Human Services for over a decade, and bonus, adding to her knowledge and lens, her husband is an adoption attorney. He was part of our adoption story with Ford and if he will have us, will be again this fall. So, I am a big fan of this couple. What I love most is, Whitney, never asked a family to do something she wasn’t willing to take on herself and she shared a depth of understanding at work because of her even bigger work, right in her home. So as you drive to work, plop down in your cozy chair, step on the treadmill, or stroll every aisle of Target, lean in as we listen to Whitney’s story of Becoming Fosters.
