Building on our last episode, David and Lynn share a few simple tips that they used with all 23 kids they fostered.

1. The one phrase every kid expected (and how it helped them succeed at work).

2. Only three home rules.

3. Empathy for rough childhoods, and realistic expectations for healing.

This is part two. Listen to part one here.

We mentioned United Way’s Bridging the Gap, helping teens transition from foster care to independent living.

NEW OFFERING! David and Lynn personally reviewed and edited Foster Together’s Family Helper matching program. Whether you’re with an agency, a county, a church, or you simply want to sponsor this program for ALL the foster families (and/or reunified families) in your area, you can see how it works here.

Special thanks to Scott and Ann (my in-laws!) who decided to join as monthly donors last week. Scott told me, “Watching you and Kyle foster opened our eyes to this whole new world, and we want to help you do that for more people." We are still seeking two more monthly donors before October.

We've have 4 new monthly donors! GOAL: 2 more by Oct. 1!
