One Final Episode is Coming

I'm terribly sorry there has been no update in a very long time. I've been trying to figure out what to do with this podcast as my wife and I are no longer foster parents. We may do it again in the future, but that would be a long time from now. If you haven't heard on the podcast, we've adopted a little girl, and shortly thereafter, found out we were pregnant. Whenever we tell people that story we hear, "I've heard that happens a lot." For this reason I'm going to talk about the experience of finding out you're expecting soon after your adoption finally goes through - in one last episode before closing shop. For my wife and I it has been a lot to process. The stress of soon having three children, three and under has been hanging over our heads. We've also been surprised that the bonding with our new adopted daughter played a role in our bonding with our next child. It will be the last episode of Fostering With Love as we're no longer foster parents. I'd hate to just leave you hanging, and I think it will be a valuable episode, so there's one more coming.

I'm sorry to end the podcast on you, and again I'm sorry it has been such a very long time since the last episode dropped. Before this week is over I'll have the final episode posted. Thank you so much for listening. Your feedback has been amazing, and I'm thrilled that this podcast has inspired others to blog about their experiences among other things.

Although my journey with you on this podcast is ending, I'm not going to stop podcasting anytime soon. I have another podcast going which showcases my fiction. I'm a writer of mostly science fiction & fantasy, but I also write the occasional thriller. On my blog you can find all the short stories I've written, free to listen to in podcast form. Many have extra production behind the reading including sound effects and background music. I'm working on making my stories available in all the eBook formats as well, and those will be coming soon. Also, on 11/11/11 I'll be releasing my first full novel as a free podcast and cheap eBook in all the formats out there.

Again, thank you so much for listening, and God Bless.
