#121: Impacting a Child’s Life – Mentoring, Fostering, Adopting (Podcast)

national adoption month

We are in the month of November and some may not realize that this month is National Adoption Month.  National Adoption Month hits home for both Susan and I because we have two adopted children as part of our family and are so blessed to be their parents.

On today’s show, we will be talking with youth speaker and teen expert, Josh Shipp, who at the age of 14 had been kicked out of numerous foster homes and acted out because he didn’t trust anyone and never expected that to change.  He beat the odds and it was because of one set of caring adults.  Josh is going to discuss with us today how he was transformed and how we can impact a child’s life.
