Episode Description

Join us as we talk about foster care with Gia Tutalo-Mote, CEO and Founder of Forever Family a nonprofit organization that produces television news stories about children in foster care that air on major broadcast stations. May is National Foster Care Awareness Month and you can do something to support a child in foster care! You don’t have to be a foster family, you can simply mentor someone or make a meaningful donation of your time or money to help out a local group in your area. Forever Family features stories crafted to engage the public and mobilize local media talent both on-air and in community-wide promotions. Gia is a wife and mother and an emmy-award winning television producer. She is also the recipient of the Angels in Adoption award from the Congressional Coalition for Adoption Institute. A guest on our holiday show this past year, Gia is back to share more exciting news about her organization and how you can be a part of a foster care child today!

There is no greater community builder than Adoption! When we educate and encourage others to become involved, more people are inspired to adopt or be a part of a community of adoption. Our show aims to educate and inspire others to get involved in building a family be it on their own or helping someone close to them bring their family home together forever.
