I am so thankful for this podcast. My husband and I are newly certified foster parents who intend to adopt a sibling group in the near future. Neither of us have any parenting experience. I really wanted to find a podcast that shared practical advice for parenting foster and adopted children. Every podcast that I listened to was primarily focused on faith. I have nothing against faith, but I was looking for something evidence-based. That is exactly what I found with the Creating a Family podcast. The guests on the program are leaders in their fields and have such helpful advice with examples of practical application. I have skipped around and only listened to episodes with an adoption focus. Here are some of the episodes I found to be extremely helpful: Trauma-Informed Parenting: Practical Applications of TBRI, Dr. Karyn Purvis -- Raising and Healing Abused and Neglected Kids, Therapeutic Parenting: Practical Applications, Helping Children Heal From Past Trauma, No Such Thing as a Bad Kid -- Parenting Traumatized Kids, Pracitcal Solutions to Typical Food Issues with Adopted and Foster Kids, Parenting Tips for Lying, Stealing & Other Annoying Behaviors, Impact of Loss on Foster Kids and Foster Parents, Preparing Grandparents When You are Adopting, Joys and Challenges of Adopting Siblings. Dawn, thank you for this resource! I'm looking forward to listening to many more episodes as we progress through our journey.
