Today we’re kicking off Season 17 of the Honestly Adoption Podcast and we couldn’t be more excited. We have so many amazing, talented, and wise guests lined up. You’re going to be challenged and inspired!
Recently, Mike and Kristin sat down with Keia Jones-Baldwin from Raising Cultures to talk about raising a multiracial family, the ups and downs of parenting, her brand new podcast, and the ever so fun experience of dealing with internet trolls, and how to hit personal attacks online head on. You’re going to love this interview. Keia is a rockstar and has a brilliant perspective. Listen to the interview now…
It’s something prospective parents, or those considering the journey again, have wondered: Should I or should I not foster or adopt out of birth order? Here are some thoughts…
I once met with a couple who were adamant about their adoption experience. They had to (and I mean had to) adopt their children in age order. It was a must! It was the law, as far as they were concerned. As I looked them both in the eye, and listened to the high pitches in their tone as they shared their vision, I knew they were serious. They had signed up to be foster parents, not necessarily intending to adopt every child they fostered, but were open to it.

The foster and adoptive parenting journey may not be for everyone, and that’s okay. But everyone can do something. If you know someone who has asked this question, or you have wondered this, here are some ways you can help…
It’s true, not everyone is called to foster or adopt. When Mike and I first started fostering, I couldn’t see a reason that we would ever stop. Children are coming into care at an alarming rate and many are unable to return home. When we first became foster parents we knew that our primary goal was to reunify families and help children heal. However, children are often in foster care long term. Many are adopted by their foster families. Permanency is a good thing but it also means that foster homes are reaching capacity and having to close their doors. This is what happened in our family. The day after our 8th adoption, our home had reached capacity, we closed our license and stopped fostering.
Mike and Kristin will be speaking at The Villages of Indiana Post-Adoptive Services Training Event on March 7th.
Kristin will be speaking at the Filled Retreat East Coast on February 21-23.
