On today’s episode of Wire Talk, we have a very special guest, Sandra Stanley. Sandra is joining us to talk about a topic close to her heart: fostering.

You might know of a family who has embarked on the beautiful journey of fostering, but have questions about what it looks like, what it involves and if it’s something you and your family could do. This is why, instead of taking listener questions today, Sandra is going through her five most frequently asked questions about fostering. We hope this episodes inspires you as much as is did us—for additional reading, Sandra’s list of resources are linked below.

Sandra is a dear friend and the creator of the The Comparison Trap, the app, book and DVD. Here’s a bit more about Sandra in her own words from her website SandraStanley.com (Where she has a wonderful blog!)
