May is National Foster Care Month. Join the Indiana Dept. of Child Services as we talk with two foster parents about the joys and responsibilities of providing a temporary safe haven for abused or neglected children. We’ll also chat with a foster care specialist and explore not only what it takes to be a foster parent, but also how the nurturing they provide is so important to these traumatized children.
Guests: Sylvia Hooper & Dorin Matthews

We all know that parenting is one of the hardest yet most rewarding "jobs" out there. But what about foster parenting? As a foster parent, you're taking in children that have had tough situations, children that may challenge you, lie, and purposely be difficult as a result of the pain and/or instability they've often endured at such young ages. And then there's the foster care system that sometimes seems to create more challenges for these kids than it solves. The strength, committment and big heartedness required for foster parenting must be enormous--and the rewards likely are enormous as well. Meet Diane and Kristin Ponist, foster parents to five children, who blog about their experience on TheNextFamily.com. Tune in to hear about this lesbian family's experience caring for and loving some of our countries most vulnerable children and the difference they're making in these kids' lives.

Welcome to the Berry Patch!
Berry Patch Friends is a children’s book series written to provide essential life lessons of love and learning for children everywhere.
This is the first book in the new Berry Patch Friends series. I Have a Secret was written to help parents convey the message of “I Love You” to their children, which is lacking in so many homes today. It’s so rewarding as an author, to hear comments back from readers stating that they absolutely love this book. Typical comments are that “It is adorable”, “Oh How Fun” or that “It brought a tear to my eye” and this excites me, realizing that it is connecting with my intended audience. I trust that you will enjoy this book, as well as future books in the series

Voices InJustice with Trish every Sunday evening at 9pm central time. We are a radio network production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. A community outreach focus in awareness, prevention, and empowerment to overcome our many challenges; learning together how to change the centuries of human trauma and teach our children a better way for their future.
Tonight we are discussing STIGMA - Share your voice by calling Trish @ (929) 477-3163 or join the online chatroom as we address the many societal stigma attached to persons without ever knowing who they really are. We see obesity, bikers, the color of skin, a nationality, or even the economically poor neighbor down the street and we all pass judgement as if we know their life, but do we or are we repeating what our parents taught us? What are we as parents today teaching our children in an America, or other country, where we have such an entire mixed community attending school with our children?
This is a very hot topic with all that happens in our world. We have economic breakdown and battles rising around the world. Our kids watch the news and hear about two or three gang related shootings everyday. They attend shcools where the bullying by judgement causes children as young as 9 years old to take their own lives. Will we ever be able to live in a peaceful accepting society? Give your teen, your child, the individual ability to learn who people are before they see a color, a tatoo, an eating disorder, or a poor neglected child suffering to get through everyday and instantly attach the centuries of judgement.
Visit our website, www.butterflydreamsabuserecovery.com where we provide information to understand our taught human behaviors of mankinds worst nature. Our shows are for entertainment purposes only. Invite your friends & family to join in live!!
