There's no question that loss is a major storyline of the foster and adoption journey. Children lose their first families, their first homes, and their sense of normal and familiar. But equally, they often lose their identity, connection to who they are, and subsequently, their purpose. It's crucial that caregivers keep a finger on this pulse and learn how to respond with compassion and understanding.
That's why we're excited to welcome Tina Bauer to the show. Her perspective, insight, and firsthand experience in the foster care system, and later being adopted from foster care, is a priceless resource for parents.
One of the things we LOVE about hosting this podcast, is the deeply valuable lessons we learn from our guests. We intentionally schedule guests who challenge us, inspire us, and motivate us. This discussion with Marcie was one of the most aw-inspiring and thought-provoking interviews we've done in the 5 year history of this show! We promise...you will love Marcie and her amazing perspective on the topic of re-learning history!
We're excited to welcome Marna Pacheco from CapeAble Weighted Products to The Honestly Adoption Podcast to discuss how weighted products (blankets, vests, wraps, etc) can help your children who have sensory needs. Through their patented Smart Weight Technology, CapeAble Weighted Products is changing the game in the weighted products field. And good news...the products she shares are NOT just for children. Adults can benefit too! (Just ask Kristin...😉).
Jason and Amanda Palmer know a thing or two about wanting to give up. But they also know the exact steps it takes to keep going, and even start again after life's storms get the best of you. We are pleased to share our awesome interview with them on the latest episode of The Honestly Adoption Podcast!
When you understand trauma, and you know how it manifests itself in your child's life, and behavior, everything changes. A self-proclaimed trauma evangelist and adoption activist, Andi Coston speaks through the lens of trauma as an adoptee, a foster parent, an adoptive parent, and a sexual abuse survivor. We LOVE Andie and are certain you will too!
