Where: Zoom (I'll email you the link)!
Why: Because foster care doesn't have to be this hard!
6 weeks into our first foster care placement, I was sobbing my eyes out in a Starbucks.
My husband and I had just had the rug pulled out from under us at a case review meeting... my heart ached in a way that I had never felt before, and I remember my husband asking me, "are we sure we can handle this?"
Suddenly, I found myself leaning heavily on the skills I used in therapy with my clients to ease my own sense of overwhelm and anxiety. And then it hit me: if I felt that way, a loooot of other foster mamas probably did, too.
