There’s a new, especially heart-warming podcast on iHeartRadio this holiday season: It’s called “Love What Matters Presents: Your Story” and it tells everyday stories of triumph, resilience and strength. The show is hosted by Colin Balfe, the founder and CEO of the website Love What Matters.com, and it introduces the audience to individuals who show bravery and compassion midst the crazy trials and tribulations life can throw at us. Though each story is unique, the emotions behind them are relatable and remind us that it’s important to make a conscious effort to show love to everyone we meet.
In the upcoming episode of “Love What Matters Presents: Your Story,” listeners can hear the story of a couple, Caroline and Nathan, that’s titled “We need to bring these kids home.” Their moving story is all about family, and all of the many forms that family can appear, and how they fought to provide for children trapped in America’s flawed foster care system. Nathan and Caroline had always dreamed of adopting children, but financial insecurity stalled their path. Instead, they had two biological children — a boy and a girl — and led a happy life. But when their daughter told them about Kaylee, a friend at school who was struggling in the foster care system, the couple started the process of becoming her foster parents. They worked to move Kylee out of a group home into their home and, in a grueling, multi-year process, they eventually welcomed Kylee and her four brothers into their family. Dreams came true, and Nathan and Caroline’s family of four was transformed into a family of nine.
New episodes of the show are released every Thursday — so check it out! These stories will keep reminding you what is most important as we enter the holiday season. You can stream “Love What Matters Presents: Your Story” today on iHeartRadio.
