Fostering Parenthood

Episode 8: Baby powder snow flurry: A holiday special edition

Featuring Faye

Dorothy gets support from care service specialist Faye Holmes, who tells her it’s all right to put the laundry off another week and call a friend. We all need to be kind to ourselves during this holiday season. We also hear from two of Dorothy’s foster youth about how they want to incorporate their past traditions and cultures into this year’s holiday celebration.

Dorothy Daniels Hi, I’m Dorothy Daniels, I’m a pediatric nurse, a sexual health educator, a mom of 12, and a foster parent just like you. When I became a foster parent, I realized that caregivers oftentimes got overlooked with support, resources, and help during this journey because most things focused on the kids. Fostering Parenthood is that support for caregivers.

Faye Holmes is the Care Service Specialist at Fostering Unity, a former foster child, and foster/adoptive parent of two.
