In this episode, Jami chats with Lindsay Emswiler, a foster parent who has a practical, holistic view of foster care and a huge heart for bio-parents. Her story of releasing her foster son into God’s hands and potentially back into his bio-dad’s care will touch your heart (you may want tissues handy for this one!). Her story is filled with compassion and honesty—and a lot of joy!
In this episode, you’ll discover…
- A new perspective on bio-parents—how their past influences their present and future.
- An engaging, but challenging, response to the “I could never do that” statement.
- An honest, real look at how foster parents can make a difference in bio-parents’ lives.
God, you’ve given me this wonderful life; how can I not share that with someone else?
Lindsay Emswiler is just a regular mom, business owner and pastor’s wife whose eyes were opened and life transformed when she became a foster parent. She and her husband, Cory, live in West Virginia with their kids–two biological, one adopted, and whomever the else the Lord brings their way! Connect with Lindsay via Facebook or Instagram.
