The Main Thing:

Adding to your family is a life-changing event. Whether biologically, adoption or foster care, it’s a major event and everything is different thereafter. At some point, it comes time to return to “normal” or some of the responsibilities we had pre-family addition. But how? And with what support?

We had the privilege of sitting down with Dr. Matt Quade, Associate Professor of Management at Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business. As a passionate educator and fellow adoptive parent he has completed and participated in extensive research opportunities pertaining to adoptive parent support. He’s joined us to share his insights and advice on how to navigate getting back to work!

Episode Resources:

Matt recommended checking out 5 Gears by Jeremie Kubicek and connecting with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption for more on what we discussed in Episode 026!
