Thanks for the updates! I'm enjoying your podcast as my partner and I begin a similar journey. Do you have any recommended resources (books, movies, etc.)?
Thanks so much for listening Ryan! Congratulations to you and your partner! My two favorite gay parenting books are "The Kid" by Dan Savage and "Does this baby make me look straight?" by Dan Bucatinski. The best resource I've ever encountered on foster parenting is the Foster Parenting Podcast by Tim and Wendy. The best movie ever created on foster care is Removed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOeQUwdAjE0 - there are more if you want to put your email address in the contact us form. Best wishes!
I really enjoy the podcast. My husband and I have just begun the process in Georgia. We have 2 bio kids and thought our family was complete until I met the boys at a school where I teach. It is nice to get an idea of the process and the challenges to come. That is if we don't fail our homstudy. Keep the podcasts coming I need all the info I can get.
The Foster Adoption Podcast is a resource for people who are interested in growing their family by adopting children from foster care.
