The Main Thing: Tracy always had a heart for orphans, so when their family learned of the opportunity to host international orphans in hopes of helping them to find a forever family stateside, they were all-in. After a few opportunities, the Scoggins family hosted a young boy from Ukraine and he immediately stole Tracy's heart. With a heart for adoption, she was hopeful that her family might also feel the special connection.  Sadly, the young boy returned to his home, and Tracy was left with an impossible feeling of emptiness. But God. Join us for Episode 057 to hear Tracy's story of trust, faith, and perseverance. It's a story only God could write for a family willing to follow the call. We're so grateful for our time with Tracy and we know her story will be an encouragement to all who listen!Episode Resources: Adoption Through the Rearview Mirror by Karen Springs2 A.M.

The 20% growth of the gaming industry during the pandemic turn it into a talent constraint market. Betting dollars, hours of content consumption, people buying the consoles, and the entertainment industry, in general, is heading into esports and gaming. Because of all that, companies turn into recruitment agencies and ask for help; they need to recruit double of what they initially thought they would. That is one of the many challenges recruiters face and some of the things we will discuss with Kim Shatzer today. Kim Shatzer is the Managing Director at Onward Play and Women In Games Ambassador. Kim is also a Board Member of Feeding the Orphans and Marketing and Communications Committee Member at the Esports Trade Association. We discussed the challenges recruitment teams face in the growing gaming and esports industry from the candidates' and corporations' perspectives. Kim shared her story of how she was converted into the gaming world and fell in love with the industry. We also talked about diversity, inclusion, and the details companies should observe before getting into the gaming and esports industry.

“If you're going to have a story, have a big story.”– Joseph Campbell The first four Archetypes ( Innocent, Orphan, Warrior and Caregiver) help us prepare for the journey. We start the journey as the Innocent and learn optimism and trust. At some point there is a “fall” and we become Orphans who feel disappointed, abandoned and betrayed by life (especially the people who were supposed to care for us) but teach us to care for ourselves and to stop relying on other people. Ironically, the orphan feels so powerless and helpless that its best strategy for survival is to find others to provide mutual support. The Warrior helps us learn to set goals and develop strategies to achieve them like courage and discipline. Eventually the Caregiver becomes active we learn to take care of others and eventually how to take care of ourselves as well. The four attributes of these Archetypes: Basic optimism, the capacity to band together for support, the courage to fight for yourself and others and compassion to care for yourself and others provide the basic skills for living in society. But if this is all we can do we will feel unsatisfied with our lives, even though we have learned what is necessary to be both moral and successful in the world.

Jewish History Soundbites is proud to launch a special series entitled ‘Jewish Saviors of the Holocaust'. It will explore the narratives of Jews under Nazi occupation risking their lives to save others during the Holocaust. Each unique profile will explore another story, angle and individual (or group of individuals) who though their own lives were at risk still did everything in their power to save others. The series opens with the story of Yona Tiefenbrunner, known to the orphans he saves as ‘Monsieur'. Born in Germany, he arrived as a refugee in Belgium shortly before the war's outbreak. He initially opened an orphanage at his own expense in order to assist German Jewish refugee children. With the Nazi occupation of Belgium and the subsequent deportations in 1942, his Brussels orphanage emerged as an island of rescue, as the Nazis miraculously allowed the orphanage to operate and spare the children from deportation to the east. Maintaining a semblance of normalcy under increasingly challenging conditions, Yona managed to care for the orphans' physical and religious welfare until liberation. Following the war, the orphanage relocated to Antwerp and cared for children survivors until its closing in 1960.    To dedicate an episode in the Jewish History Soundbites ‘Jewish Saviors of the Holocaust' series, please contact Yehuda at yehuda@yehudageberer.com    For sponsorship opportunities about your favorite topics of Jewish history contact Yehuda at:  yehuda@yehudageberer.com   Subscribe To Our Podcast on:    PodBean: https://jsoundbites.podbean.com/   Follow us on Twitter or Instagram at @Jsoundbites You can email Yehuda at yehuda@yehudageberer.com

Welcome to Season 3 of the FASD Family Life Podcast. I am your host, Robbie Seale. I am an FASD educator, advocate and mom of five incredible people, including three teens diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. If my 30 years of parenting has taught me anything it is that the struggle is real and so is success.  This third season of the FASD Family Life podcast is a lot of fun. It's called MomTalk. I invited other mom's raising children and youth with FASD to join me for a coffee and a chat about real life, real struggles and real successes. It is my hope that by listening to our conversations you have the sense that you are not alone; we all get things wrong and we find out that when we know better we can do better. SUBSCRIBE NOW so you never miss an episode of FASD Family Life.Please join me and my special guest Sandra Flach for the first episode of MomTalk. Sandra is the mom of 8 children; five of whom came to her through adoption. Sandra is a woman on the move! She is an author, podcaster, director of a non-profit called Justice for Orphans, Wife, mother and grandmother.  I caught up with Sandra and asked her to join me on MomTalk. Justice For Orphans was founded in 2012 by Sandra Flach and Mary Slager.  These adoptive and foster moms were wrecked by the global orphan crisis and the national foster care crisis—and the church's lack of response to it.  On a mission to rally the Church, the duo jumped into advocacy work and began hosting annual adoption and foster care conferences. Sandra and Mary launched and hosted the Orphans No More weekly radio program on WDCD in Albany, NY in 2014. By 2018, the show became a podcast to encourage, educate, and equip those who care for children through adoption, foster care and kinship care. Today, the podcast, hosted by Sandra Flach, has a new name—The Adoption & Foster Care Journey— and tens of thousands of listeners world-wide.

We then get into a longer conversation on Roe v. Wade and the practical implications if federal legislation on abortion changes.  Full show notes can be found at thinkorphan.com

The Bible makes it very clear in James 1 and Matthew 25 that God wants us to care for the “Least of These” for in doing so, we literally get the chance to caring for God Himself, and those whom He holds so dear! God said in his word that He specifically wants us to care for, the Orphans; the Children who have, for any number of reason, found themselves alone without the family they were born into. The Trauma, loss, neglect, abuse, and abandonment that many of these children have had to face in addition to being orphaned, for most of us is simply too much to comprehend. Every year SkyWatch TV, Simply HIS Coffee Shop, and Defender Publishing, partner with you our viewers to help support and work along side ministries, like ForTheChildren.Org and their Royal Family Kids Camps to really make a difference in the lives of these children through the work done at Whispering Ponies Ranch, the non for profit ministry SkyWatch TV underwrites. Throughout the summer we work alongside these ministries to run 3 to 5 days camps where At Risk, and Foster Children came come, Meet Jesus, and get tangible help to work through the trauma's of their past.

Power and kindness rarely go together. I don't know about you, but I'm so thankful the most powerful being in the universe is also exceedingly compassionate! In fact, when he revealed himself to Moses, compassion was the first attribute he declared about himself. We see the outworking of God's compassion in the laws he provided Israel in the Torah, especially the provisions he made for those who were vulnerable or suffering. These serve as examples for how we should think about those in difficult life circumstances. Scripture calls us to imitate our Father as dear children. Let's be a compassionate people who genuinely feel for those in dire straits and who seek to do our part to alleviate their suffering. Listen to this episode on Spotify or Apple Podcasts https://youtu.be/iMOptuZptDI —— Notes —— Exodus 34:6-7 Compassion/mercy is the first of God's attributes that He listed out when He revealed His glory to Moses. Exodus 22:21-27 God cares about the sojourners, widows, and orphans. He hears their prayers and takes up their cause because He is compassionate. Deuteronomy 24:10-22 God wanted His people never to forget that they were once slaves in Egypt. The benefit of that corporate memory was that they would have compassion on others in need like the poor, the sojourner, the orphan, and the widow. Deuteronomy 25:5-10 God installed an automatic system to ensure that widows would have the chance to get remarried quickly. Deuteronomy 26:12-13 The people's tithes went to provide for the Levites, sojourners, orphans, and widows. It was important to God that His people not forget these categories of people. Psalm 68:4-5 4 Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the LORD; exult before him! 5 Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation. Zechariah 7:9-14 Sadly, God's people did not act in compassion to the vulnerable members of their society. They took advantage of the weak and closed their ears to hear their cry. Other than idolatry, their lack of compassion was the chief reason God exiled them from their land. Luke 6:30-36 Our Lord taught us that we too should be merciful just as God is. We too should be generous to the poor and kind to the undeserving. —— Links —— Check out these other episodes related to compassion For outro comments, see Looking for the Historical Jesus between Evangelical and Liberal Scholarship Support Restitutio by donating here Designate Restitutio as your charity of choice for Amazon purchases Join our Restitutio Facebook Group and follow us on Twitter @RestitutioSF Leave a voice message via SpeakPipe with questions or comments and we may play them out on the air Intro music: Good Vibes by MBB Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0) Free Download / Stream: Music promoted by Audio Library.

Love Never Fails International began in 2009 when founder, Dr. Johnathan Kraus, felt the calling to leave his teaching career in NJ, USA to go to India and help children suffering in the slums. This all started after watching the movie Slumdog Millionaire  with friends from Church.After God spoke to Johnathan's heart he continued his teaching position in NJ, but would return home each day and fall on his knees crying out to the Lord in tears to open a door to India where he could reach suffering children and provide a solution to poverty. At the time, Johnathan had no connections to make his dream a reality. With much fasting and praying God began to open doors to India and Johnathan moved there in 2010 with passion, love, and a God size vision to see many children in India set free from poverty and come to Jesus.More About Love Never Fails India:  https://loveneverfailsindia.com/Donate to Love Never Fails India:  https://loveneverfailsindia.com/donate/Support This Podcast!

Paving the Way Foundation aims to help inform people about human trafficking especially to children and parents. It helps in enlightening them about the topic so it could be prevented in the future. She personally saw how human trafficking is happening during a mission she went into after she left her job. Human trafficking has been a huge problem especially to those who are misinformed on what it is. Parents are most often don't have any idea that it was already happening in the lives of their kids. The kids sometimes do not tell their parents on what's happening.  Orphans are also victims. Edwards mentioned that they were the number one source of human trafficking. Children are most likely the target in this. Episode 201 of The Beyond Adversity Podcast are for those who wants to be educated and enlightened about the topic regarding human trafficking. This will help prevent grooming and recruitment of children. In this episode, Edwards shares to us her personal experience while working in the foundation.

Photo:  In the decades after World War II, the term "eugenics" took on a negative connotation and became increasingly unpopular within academic science. Many organizations and journals that had their origins in the eugenics movement began to distance themselves from the philosophy, as when Eugenics Quarterly became Social Biology in 1969.             Margaret Higgins Sanger founded the American Birth Control League, which later became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. She is widely considered to have been a eugenicist and proponent of abortion. "We hold that children should be (1) Conceived in love; (2) Born of the mother's conscious desire; (3) And only begotten under conditions which render possible the heritage of health. Therefore we hold that every woman must possess the power and freedom to prevent conception except when these conditions can be satisfied." 3/4    The Orphans of Davenport: Eugenics, the Great Depression, and the War over Children's Intelligence, by Marilyn Brookwood  @MarilynBrookwo1    @wwnorton.  https://www.amazon.com/Orphans-Davenport-Depression-Childrens-Intelligence/dp/1631494686 The fascinating―and eerily timely―tale of the forgotten, Depression-era psychologists who launched the modern science of childhood development. “Doomed from birth” was how the psychologist Harold Skeels described two toddler girls at the Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' Home in Davenport, Iowa, in 1934. Their IQ scores, added together, totaled just 81. Following prevailing eugenic beliefs of the times, Skeels and his colleague Marie Skodak assumed that the girls had inherited their parents' low intelligence and were therefore unfit for adoption. The girls were sent to an institution for the “feebleminded” to be cared for by “moron” women. To Skeels and Skodak's astonishment, under the women's care, the children's IQ scores became normal.  Now considered one of the most important scientific findings of the twentieth century, the discovery that environment shapes children's intelligence was also one of the most fiercely contested―and its origin story has never been told. In The Orphans of Davenport, the psychologist and esteemed historian Marilyn Brookwood chronicles how a band of young psychologists in 1930s Iowa shattered the nature-versus-nurture debate and overthrew long-accepted racist and classist views of childhood development
