Kristi and Michael are foster parents, experiencing the ups and downs in their household as children try to adapt when they’re living in a place of trauma and upset. No matter what has happened in their lives, all of the children they have cared for have some experience with trauma – just getting pulled into the system creates its own trauma.

That, Michael says, is what it’s all about. Listen to their story and see some of the special people who build hope in their homes.
