On this episode of the Bespoke Parenting Hour, host Julie Gunlock speaks to professor Christina Villegas, author of an upcoming reference book on foster care, about her own foster care to adoption story. Professor Villegas and her husband Manny went unexpectedly from zero to four kids age four and under in four years through the foster-to-adoption process. Julie asks Professor Villegas about that rapid change in lifestyle, her efforts to balance motherhood with work as a professor, and why a support system is key to success in fostering and adoption.
