    Transracial Adoption: Parenting 12 to 18 Year Olds

    in Parents

    Parenting children tweens and teen requires a different approach than parenting preschool and school aged children. No where is this more true than when parenting transracially adopted kids. It helps to think about these differences when our children are young. Host Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization, interviews Beth Hall, founder and director of Pact and Adoption Alliance, co-author of Inside Transracial Adoption, and a mom to two transracially adopted young adults; and Judy Miller, an adoption educator and support specialist, author of the email course, Parenting Your Adopted Child: Tweens, Teens & Beyond, and mom of four through birth and adoption.


    For more information on this subject, check out the free resources on Transracial Adoption on our website.

    Pieces of the Puzzle: A Personal Journey of Raising a Child With Special Needs

    in Parents

    Pieces of the Puzzle: A Personal Journey of Raising a Child With Special Needs with Wendy Keyes Roback


    In Pieces of the Puzzle, Wendy Keyes Roback shares her personal account of parenting a special needs child and her quest for answers about her son, who is eventually diagnosed with a significant hearing loss and a rare genetic condition. Get ready for laughs and tears as Wendy recounts the highs and lows she experiences during the first seven years of Jaden's life, and be there as she struggles with the issues that raising this unique child brings.


    Eventually, this mother learns that her son's condition does not define him, and that having a special needs child is not the life-shattering diagnosis most expect it to be. She realizes that Jaden is perfect just the way he is and that the life she was given is even better than the life she envisioned. Pieces of the Puzzle is optimistic, honest, and empowering, offering hope and inspiration to other parents and affording the reader a glimpse into the life of a very special child.

    IEPs for You and Me

    in Parents

    Who owns the IEP process? Hear some insight from a special needs mom who's also a special education teacher. 



    Parents don't always realize how much work goes into an IEP, or how challenging it is for the teachers who write them.
    Teachers don't always appreciate how lost parents can feel through the whole process.
    Kids rarely get the full spectrum of services that will make for the most enriching educational experience possible. 


    Parents have to be the final driving force in the education of their child, because the only thing that will follow a child from pre-k to graduation is that IEP file and parental guidance.


    Be sure to check out the IEP Aide from Vestidd, which will guide you through the important information on that IEP, and will allow you to store all of that paperwork easily, so that you can be the driving force and let that IEP grow with your child.

    It's time for our annual adoption tax credit show. If you had adoption expenses in 2014, can you get a federal tax credit for them? Is this tax credit applicable to foster care adoption, or international adoption, or infant adoption? Can you claim birth mother expenses. Host Dawn Davenport, Exec. Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization, will interview Becky Wilmoth, an Enrolled Agent and Adoption Tax Credit Specialist® at Bills Tax Service, and a frequent speaker on this topic.

    Special Needs Parenting

    in Lifestyle

    Join me and my special guest Stephanie Collins, as we discuss her struggles as a parent with special needs children and how writing down about her experiences was not only therapeutic, but led her to write a book. "With Angels Wings", tells the  story of what she went through without romanticizing or glazing over the most difficult times. Her message is to tell the parents of special needs children that they are not alone, to give professionals working with these parents a perspective, and to give all others a glimpse into the world of special needs children.

    Needs Met Church - Meeting Needs & discussing hard topics - Sermon on Works

    in Religion

    today, we will be discussing Works.


    Not a popular subject, but one that we need to talk about. As usual, needs take center stage. If you have a need, or the ability to meet a need, let us knor at anytime by using our call in line, chat, or email. God meets needs, but he uses us to do the work.


    Needs Met is a Christian Non-profit 501c3 Ministry and Church that looks for needs in our community and meets those needs through others that want to help meet those needs. Needs can be most anyting like;



    food
    Jobs
    clothing
    household items
    furniture
    medical
    dental
    services like BabySitting, Resumes, handman services etc...


    God is our source for the meeting of needs, but God uses you and me to do His work.



    If you have a need, please let us know and watch as God meets that need.
    If you have the ability and desire to meet a need, God wants you! God can use you to meet the needs of others. But you have to let someone know that you are able and willing to meet needs. Offer up yor ability, resource, or talent that you have and watch as God uses it to help those in need.
