Adjusting the Sails

May 1, 2023

In honor of foster care awareness month, Tracy Wood has joined us to kickoff a series of episodes on the heart-wrenching, cup filling, love inspiring reality of fostering a child with a disability or special health care need. 

Having fostered dozens of children, Tracy shares that the secret to a happy child and a successful foster placement is to surround the child and their biological family with a village. Tracy goes into the details of how her relationship with her son's biological mother was transformed and of the person that benefits the most from their friendship...Gavin.
