Chris, Kayla, and Ryan are joined by Jillana Goble to talk about her experiences as a foster and adoptive mom, how she came to write her book, No Sugar Coating: The Coffee Talk You Need About Foster Parenting, and her work with Embrace Oregon. The latter is an Every Child Oregon initiative, which seeks to help foster children and foster families in the state of Oregon through partnering with their Department of Human Services Child Welfare.
Jillana's book is a must-read for anyone thinking about fostering children, for those who do not plan to foster but wish to support those who do, and for foster parents who, in the face of what may seem overwhelming issues, may need reminders of why they started this journey in the first place.
