Add Water and Stir: Women of Color | Adoption | Foster Care | Parenting
About This Show
Add Water and Stir will focus on promoting adoption within communities of color, especially within the African American community. We want to give voice and visibility to families like ours who often seem left out of mainstream adoption conversations. We hope to educate others as we talk about our struggles and triumphs of parenting adopted children. Of course, there will be time for Mimi and ABM will kick it about all kinds of not necessarily adoption related topics as well.

AWAS 053: Parenting Plans for 2017
1 day ago
On the first episode of 2017, Mimi and ABM return from their holiday break to discuss what’s in store for their families for the year. The ladies shied away from setting New Year’s resolutions due to the poor success rates associated with keeping those resolutions. Instead, ABM and Mimi set larger goals for their families for 2017. They discuss their family plans for the year, and note the differences in their family goals based on the ages of Hope and Nana. Spoiler alert--both families have goals related to weekend activities, but they could not be more different! During the show’s second segment, ABM and Mimi dish about all the plans they have for Add Water and Stir for 2017! There will be a new podcast website, more interviews on topics you want to hear about, guest blogging opportunities, and the return of quarterly live shows! There will also be new show segments and lots of great content on the Add Water and Stir page on Facebook. The ladies hope to make Add Water and Stir your primary source of information on adoption and raising healthy well-adjusted children of color. Of course, they kick of the new year with a Wind Down segment about the San Francisco phenomenon “Cutty Bangs.” Find show notes at www.addwaterandstirpodcast.com; Like us on Facebook at facebook.com/AWASPod; Tweet Us @AWASPod

As always I can count on a fresh perspective while listening to this show which helps me navigate my own adoption journey. Angela Harden had great points.

The show is informative and downright funny! I learn not only about the world of adoption, but current events and pop culture. Keep up the great work.
