Latest episode 5 days ago

Have you ever felt called to create something bigger than yourself? Something that truly rocked your world, and changed the trajectory of your life? Did it hit you at the worst moment? Me too! I was walking the picket line with my husband pushing my special needs son in his wheelchair. We had just gone from dual income, 2 kids to NO income, 2 kids. We didn’t know how we were going to pay the bills, the mortgage or put food on the table. The future looked really bleak. As we were walking, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I realized that in addition to all this we were never going to be able to meet my older son’s lifelong needs! I knew then that I needed to make big changes and quick! To be able to create a legacy for our family, I was going to have to change everything I was doing, and everything I believed my life would be. It was terrifying! I’ve always been a take charge person. But what people didn’t see was the fear and doubt I found myself riddled with. They had no idea how worried I was that I’d never achieve the dream that was beginning to form; that I’d fail my son. Then I realized that like King Arthur and the Knights of the Round table, I didn’t have to have all the answers. I needed to create a community who could support me on my journey; people who were building amazing legacies, so their stories could inspire me to keep moving forward. I realized I could actually live into my own Legacy. We’re here to tell you that YOU can too! We are on a mission to help people like you and me live into a legacy they love. Join in as we share inspiring stories of ordinary people creating incredible legacies and learn from those who support us along the way. I am your host Michelle Slaney-Trovato and this is the Living Your Legacy Podcast.

What is the difference between fostering and adoption? This is the place to find answers to these questions and more. Over the coming months, we will be talking through the application process, the kinds of professional training and support you can expect and the different types of fostering, including fostering to adoption and parent and child placements. We will speak with those who've walked the walk (and can talk the talk).Barnardo's needs more families, couples and single carers, from all walks of life, whether they are considering fostering and/or adoption, to ensure that when a child needs a loving family, the right one is there for them.
