Talking with Annarose about Siblings

If your family is a blend of kids by birth and adoption/foster care, or if you had an established family created by adoption and then added new children from “hard places,” don’t miss this interview with my daughter, Annarose.

How do siblings in the family feel, and what do they experience, when you add children to the family through adoption or foster care? What if the new children come with lots of challenges?

Annarose, the middle child of eleven, talks about the challenges and blessings of being a sister to kids through adoption.

I hope you enjoy Episode #5 Giving Voice to Siblings.

If you’d like to listen on your phone but don’t know how, follow these simple instructions. I’m hooked on podcasts and listen to them when I’m driving, walking, cooking, cleaning – anytime I can pop an earbud in without ignoring the people around me.

I realize I haven’t been posting the episodes here on One Thankful Mom. I’m not sure how I missed the obvious – I’ll be sure to do so in the future.

Have a courageous day,

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 TBRI® 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.
