Podcast title Foster Care: An Unparalleled Journey
Website URL http://jasonmpalmer.com
Description Foster care is truly an unparalleled experience. This is our journey as a foster and adoptive family that has seen and experienced a lot! We want to share our joy and heartbreak with the world to inspire others to join in our mission of providing strength to the weakest among us. We are sharing our personal experiences as a foster and adoptive family and the stories that other brave souls are willing to generously share with us. Our goal is to help potential foster families take that next step in the process and to encourage bio families to work with us towards the best possible resolution for every kid in care. There is no better place for any kid to be than in their home with a mom and dad that cares enough about them to stop any behavior that puts their kids at risk. If you are willing to work towards that goal, we would love to encourage you to do so in any way we can! Come listen to our story and find your hope! You can find us at linktr.ee/jasonmpalmer

My lovely wife Amanda and I tell stories and share lessons that we have learned on our journey. I hope to inspire you to consider joining us in supporting kids that need the love of one caring person to change their lives.

Foster care is one of the most formative experiences of my adult life and has been an integral part of growing into the man I am today. I hope to inspire some of you to consider joining us in our mission of providing strength to the weakest among us. I can guarantee that regardless of where you live - if you have neighbors - you have a need in your community.
