Parenting with Hope is a day of encouragement and equipping for adoptive and foster parents. Our diverse panel will share great tools for the journey as you address unique challenges within your family. Challenging behaviors and academic difficulties are an intricate part of everyday life, so come join us and be filled with practical resources and insights as you Parent with Hope. The Lord is our strength and the source of all things good. Come be reminded of His power for you. Our incredibly gifted feature speakers will include Mandy Howard (formerly of the TCU Institute of Child Development), Pam Parish (author and foster/adoptive mother), and Ann Maura Hinton (from Empower Ministries).
