David and Jayne Schooler from Back2Back Ministries in Cincinnati, Ohio know a thing or two about building a home like this. As seasoned parents, through adoption and foster care, they have had to personally navigate difficulties and trials with children who have come from hard places. But their personal experience and valuable insight into helping children heal, as well as understanding trauma and learning how to respond differently, has helped to transform the lives of thousands of parents. We are excited to share a throwback interview with them today on The Honestly Adoption Podcast!
