There are 13,000 children in the Michigan Foster System and Elizabeth Brazilian is making sure that no child is forgotten. Her organization Child Safe Michigan, is a nonprofit which aids in foster care, adoption and mentoring.
Elizabeth Brazilian says the group “goes far beyond everything the state provides so that our children in our foster cares homes feel like they are just like every other kid in their school,”. Listen to her story and hear for yourself why she is WCSX “Women Who Rocks!”
In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter from Turning Point Macomb. This week we talk about “cuffing”. What is it, you ask? It is the fear of being alone during the holidays so you latch on to someone, or anyone rather to avoid loneliness. This is really a thing, and it happens more often than you would think around the holidays.
Cyndy and I also discuss a Dad who some are praising and others reprimanding for how he handled a bullying situation with his daughter.
And last but not least….A Catholic school let a teacher go because she was pregnant and not married. Some are saying it is justified because it is a religious school and they have a right to adhere to what they teach. Others say, the school needs to adapt to the changing times. Some parents of students at the school have even created a petition to get her reinstated.
Turning Point is ALWAYS here to help!!!!!!
YOU ARE NOT ALONE…
