Description

Today’s episode looks a little different. This is the first ever episode that I have recorded without sitting in the same room with my guest. And the next several will be the same… We are in an incredibly unique time in history. COVID-19 has rocked the entire world and, in its wake, the way we foster. It’s paused court, it’s seemingly halted progressing towards goals, family visits are remote, Zoom and FaceTime are our new best friends for therapy and worker visits… but there is plenty of good happening if we look just past the surface.

 

Today I spent some time with Mandi Mays. You may remember her and her husband Jon from Season 1, Episode 9- Wise, not Safe. Mandi and I are both foster moms, we both work in community focused work, are married to pastors, have lots of kids, and we are friends. We wanted to take some time and just talk candidly about how COVID-19 has impacted us personally, because the reality is, you might need to hear that you aren’t the only one feeling all of the things. So grab your coffee, pop in those headphones, hide in the bathroom, or take a walk around the block while you spend some time with Mandi and me today.
