Check out my podcast feature on the Adoption Connection. The adoption connection is an awesome podcast and organization who’s aim is to provide the foster and adoption communities with resources, training, and community. In this particular episode, I get to chat with Melissa Corkum about some of my earlier foster care memories, how I coped with being taken into care, the enneagram (spoiler alert, I’m an 8w7!), the importance of creating belonging, and some tangible ways to do that for foster youth you encounter. You can find the link to the episode here: and you can visit The Adoption Connection's website at
