"The fear of loving a child that might leave shouldn’t deter us. It’s the fear of that child not knowing our love that should drive us."

In this episode with Jason Johnson, you’ll discover how to find the “perfect” time to foster or adopt, how to navigate the concern of loving a child that might leave your family, and learn a new way to look at comments from strangers about your adoptive or foster family.
