Add Water and Stir Plans for October

If you’re already a fan of the Add Water and Stir Podcast, fantastic!

If you’re not, well get on board, why doncha???

This month Mimi and I will be hosting a special series called School Daze: What Foster and Adoptive Parents Should Know about Navigating the Educational System!  You will want to peep this series as we explore paperwork issues, back to school shopping, posting school pictures, IEPs, and extracurricular activities.  Each week of October–Holy Homeboy willing and the creek don’t rise–we will publish a new episode featuring special guests, best practices and wicked funny musings about our own educational escapades.  Be sure to visit the Add Water and Sir Podcast page for more information.

In the meantime, we need your help with the show!

We are very much interested in hearing your thoughts on posting pictures of your kids on social media. School just started for most of the kids in the state and abroad and everyone’s timelines have no doubt been flooded with adorable pictures of littles and bigs on their first day of school.  The ladies of Add Water and Stir are interested in what folks think about this tradition, so we’ve prepared a brief survey.  We hope you’ll take 3 minutes to fill it out.  Please share it with friends and family members even if they are not directly a part of the foster care/adoption community.  (You know I (ABM) am a researcher and I need a critical mass of responses to have confidence in the data when we share it on the show! #nerd #gooddata #pleasefilloutoursurvey) The survey is totally anonymous.

You can access the survey right here!

Add Water and Stir is also a staunch supporter of amplifying the voice of the adoptee, so we would love to feature adoptees on the show.  To discuss recording a segment, contact us at or leave us a voice message at 646-685-4199. We would love to hear from you and include you on the show.

Thanks so much for supporting Add Water and Stir!
