It’s easy to feel overburdened by life’s demands. Looking out into the world as well as under the roof of our home may cause us to question, “How did we get here? And how will we get through?” Our guest has been there. A mom via foster care, birth, and adoption—in that order—for nearly two decades, she has experienced life’s curveballs. Her come-as-you-are posture amidst a daily reality far different than she ever imagined reassures you that you’re not alone if your life isn’t tidily wrapped in a bow.

Join us to learn more and discover how to protect the vulnerable in your world.
