Can you make a difference in the life of a foster child without being a foster parent?

Absolutely! And our guest today knows not only how you can, but also how important it is to support these often-overlooked members of every one of our communities.

Our guest today is Dr. John Degarmo, leading international foster care expert, consultant, and TEDx speaker. He is the director of The Foster Care Institute, and acts as a consultant to foster care agencies as well as an expert witness to legal agencies across the USA and globe. In today’s episode we discuss how COVID lockdowns has negatively impacted children around the world, what a child in the foster care system goes through, and how each of us can be a part of the solution.

We encourage you also to watch his TedX Talk. It will break your heart, but it will motivate you to help the most vulnerable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JQYUp6sEbY

Dr. DeGarmo and his wife are also currently foster parents to three siblings, bringing their household to nine children.  Dr. DeGarmo has been a foster parent to over 60 children over the years.

 He is the author of several foster care books, including the new book
