What can a former foster youth teach us about adoption and foster care? A lot! In fact, we believe that adult adoptees and former foster youth are the greatest teachers for foster and adoptive parents. In this interview, we learn a lot!

We are so excited to share our interview with former foster youth, and adoption and foster care advocate, Tori Petersen. She is amazing, and is actively changing the story of adoption and foster care in the United States. She spends her time advocating, on a national level, for better services for children in foster care. Make sure you check out her Instagram here. Listen to the interview....

As we wrap up the podcast series, New Year, New You, the most important message we can leave you with, is the message of community. Listen to the episode now...

In today's episode, Mike discusses principles that can help you achieve this.
