On today’s show: Fostering Care, Adoption, Protection at the Periphery of Society
- Guest: Kathryn Lopez (Link: https://www.nationalreview.com/author/kathryn-jean-lopez/) joins the show to discuss foster care and adoption. Surely there is at least one family from each Christian church in the US called to fostering/adoption? Support for families that foster children can (and should) come from church/parish communities. Let’s tell the stories of birth moms who choose life; and families that foster and adopt.
- Guest: Lisa Wheeler (https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/05/pro-life-churches-must-help-foster-parents/ ) explains how she brainstormed a “one church – one child” foster care initiative. “Babies saved before they are born need care afterwards. Our churches can help.”
- Guest: Kathleen Domingo (Link: http://www.la-archdiocese.org/org/oljp/Pages/Foster-And-Adoption.aspx ) shares thoughts on Foster Care Awareness Month. You can’t sugarcoat fostering – people need to know the reality of foster care and have access to resources that support their situational needs. An intentional invitation to the laity to foster support, is important.
- Pro-life for the whole-life: California’s physician-assisted suicide law is overturned — for now The time is now to educate Catholics at the parish level on the importance of keeping physician-assisted suicide illegal in California. Know the people in your pews and become a part of the solution.
