MIAGD: Josh Shipp, a new kind of hero

MIAGD: make it a great day

Ahhhh….  It’s not often the world gets to hear some of the truth when it comes to what foster/adopted children and parents experience. 

The other evening I somehow tripped across a video by Josh Shipp who spent most of his time in the foster system.  

This video of Josh Shipp describing his experiences in foster care just won’t exit my world.  It’s honest, and it’s real. 

I had some older sons just like him.  Some worse.  Some not.  But they each possessed strong manipulative skills to pull others into their web of control, mostly for sympathy when they couldn’t bulldoze me with manipulation.  

It was refreshing, and quite reassuring to experience Josh’s testimonial.  

Please find that one kid who needs YOU.  It doesn’t have to be your child as the world is filled with children needing just one strong adult in their lives to make that difference. 

And don’t forget to make it a great day!
