Ep. 18 The Other Side of Adoption: Systems, Families, Trauma, and Hope

Welcome to the first episode of Summer Snippets! In this episode, we look at the complex topic of adoption, focusing on the unplanned removal of children from their families and the systemic issues within the foster care system. We’ll discuss these children’s challenges, the importance of family reunification, and potential solutions for creating a more supportive system.

Also, for season 2, I will be interviewing and lifting up the voices of people of color on topics of social justice and marginalization, particularly as it relates to the church. If you fit that description or know someone who does, please reach out to me. My details are in the show notes.
