Season 5-Episode 41 art.001

We weren’t prepared for the toll that foster care would take on our marriage when we first began the journey 13 years ago. There we sat, in our empty living room, looking at one another as if we were acquaintances and not life partners. We were tired, defeated, frustrated, and drained of all energy. We weren’t prepared for some of the special needs that some of our children had. Because we loved them deeply, we were pouring every ounce of emotional and spiritual energy we had into them.

But what about us? How could we keep our marriage together at this pace? It’s a question that many married couples wonder when the journey gets difficult. On today’s episode of Honestly Speaking, Mike and Matt talk about some practical steps foster and adoptive parents can take to ensure their marriages can weather the storm.
