The long view on fostering

TIn the past few months, I have discovered a blog and website, confessionsofanadoptiveparent.com, with content written by Mike and Kristen Berry. 

Mike and Kristen have adopted eight kids, some with FASD. I have found the posts to contain a great deal of useful information. They offer advice from the perspective of those who have dealt with the screaming, yelling, stomping, chucking stuff around, fit that leaves the parent wanting to crawl into a hole. 

In addition to their written content, they also have a podcast that shares useful information. 

In their podcast episode released on March 23, Season 2, Episode 18 Interview with Tricia Collins, Mike interviews Tricia Collins, a former foster child.  

Many foster parents wonder if what they are doing makes a difference. 

Tricia shared it took a while, but it did make a difference. 

Check out th website and podcast. It can also be found on iTunes. Podcast link in iTunes
