There’s no question that loss is a major storyline of the foster and adoption journey. Children lose their first families, their first homes, and their sense of normal and familiar. But equally, they often lose their identity, connection to who they are, and subsequently, their purpose. It’s crucial that caregivers keep a finger on this pulse and learn how to respond with compassion and understanding.
That’s why we’re excited to welcome Tina Bauer to the show. Her perspective, insight, and firsthand experience in the foster care system, and later being adopted from foster care, is a priceless resource for parents.
A little more about Tina…
Tina Bauer is our guest today. She is a former foster youth adopted from foster care along with her brother. As a child she experienced trauma. She has seen God redeem amazing things. She is a wife, teacher, and a coffee enthusiast! On a weekly basis, Tina builds a beautiful story of redemption and grace through her Instagram @tinaa_bauerr.
