The Bitter and Sweet of Foster Care with Jamie Finn

#20 The Bitter and Sweet of Foster Care Reunification with Jamie Finn

“I couldn’t do foster care because I’d never be able to give them back.”

How many times have you heard this, said this, felt this? There’s no doubt, it’s so hard to love and care for a child and then return him to his family. And yet…

I sat down with Jamie Finn to talk about the bitter and the sweet of loving children and then letting them go. Jamie shares her journey from viewing herself as the rescuer of children to being a loving support to them and their birth families.

This was a beautiful conversation – I hope you enjoy it.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRIĀ® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.
