Welcome to Season 2, Episode 1 of "It Didn't Break Me". Although this is our first episode of Season 2, it is actually the 13th Episode of the podcast so if you have not had a chance to listen to all of the gems dropped in Season 1, I invite you to go back and do so! In this season we will be diving into people sharing their medical battles, foster care experiences, losing a spouse at a young age and so much more; there are POWERFUL stories that are waiting to be heard. Make sure you subscribe so you don't miss them. I guarantee you are bound to be moved and inspired by each and every guest.

To start us off, I already had to grab a box of tissues while speaking to this Season's first guest, Antonio Grate. Antonio is a motivational speaker, educator, minister and husband of four who found his tenacity in the memory of his beloved grandmother. From a drug addicted parent to foster care, he triumphed. Today, he uses his experience to offer insight on how to be a phenomenal foster parent to children in need.

I invite you to join our conversation as Antonio and I discuss:

  • Impact of Drugs
  • Toxic environment
  • Power of love
  • Foster care
  • Kinship care
  • Forgiveness
  • Coping mechanisms
  • Challenges
  • Healing
