On the next episode of Add Water and Stir, Mimi and ABM talk about helping foster and adoptive kids make the transition home. Transitions can be hard for our kids; often they’ve been shuttled about before a match is made. It takes time to build trust, to reduce anxiety and to help kids feel safe. These can also be trying times for parents too, and self-care can be a low priority.
On the second segment of the show, the ladies will discuss college savings for adoptees and foster kids. With older kids, time to save may be limited. ABM and Mimi will talk about their strategies for helping their daughters plan for the future.
Of course, no episode of Add Water would be complete without a brief confab about the latest in pop culture!
