143 - "Some of These Kids Are Trying To Save The Heartache Before It Would Happen" - Adoption & Foster Care

Fathers Fire

Aug 16 2021 • 29 mins

I'm super excited to have Michael Quintock for the second episode of FathersFyre. He recently adopted his third child, a newborn baby girl, so I thought it'd be fun to talk about the challenge and fun of adoption.

  • Me naively asking my brother if adopting a child you feel like they are yours
  • A lot of people asking that question and me learning the answer for myself—adopting our two kids
  • Working through the attachment process of adopted children
  • Bringing a baby into the home versus older children
  • Working through regression and providing a safe place for your adopted kids
  • Working through a child’s fear shown by their bad behavior to protect themselves - trying to save a hear
  • How come newborn babies smell so good
  • Showing affection as a dad
