WNSB’s Hampton Roads Voices Helps to Foster Love through Adoption

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

There are currently more than 4,000 children in the foster care system in the United States and most of the children were placed there as a result of neglect and abuse. These children lack a stable nurturing home and often times are “forgotten” as they are shuffled to and from temporary places. Often times, people are interested in adopting or becoming a foster parent to a child in need but are intimated or ill-informed of the process and how to get started.

This week, special guest experts, Heather Wilson, intake and recruitment manager of foster care and adoption services at the Up Center, and Linda Michie, founder of Wishing Well Adoption & Family Services LLC, will sit in with HRV host Khilo to provide help for listeners who are interested in foster care and/or adoption. The discussion will offer the step-by-step process of adopting and/or fostering a new son or daughter.

Hampton Roads Voices: Fostering Love airs live Friday, July 21 from 5–7 p.m. on 91.1 FM and rebroadcasts on Sunday, July 23, at noon. Listen online here, and become a part of the conversation by sharing your comments and questions on Facebook and Twitter. Use #HRV. Also you can join the discussion by calling our phone line at 757.823.9110. Phone calls are screened and have a 20-second delay.
