23: The joys and challenges of foster and adoptive parenting

Join me on this special episode of Mom Talk with Denise LaRosa, as I have a mom talk with mom blogger and foster parenting advocate, Kelly Hughes.

Kelly is a happily married wife and mother of 2 biological children.  Kelly and her husband are certified foster parents and have fostered 7 kids in 3 separate siblings groups. They are now in the process of adopting 2 of their foster children.

If all of that weren’t enough to keep her busy, Kelly is also the founder of The Pgh Momtourage, a community of Pittsburgh moms who love to connect with other moms (& dads), sharing in the experiences - and the craziness - of parenthood and enjoying our city together. As a foster parent, Kelly Hughes has watched 7 little ones show up at her door step with little or nothing. With often short notice of their arrival, it can become a scramble for foster parents to have basic clothing and necessities for the children. So she created the Foster Love Project to encourage donations of placement bags.

If you are a foster or adoptive parent, or have a desire to become a foster or adoptive parent, then I highly encourage you to open your heart and mind, and listen to Kelly share her joys, challenges and experiences with both.
