On this episode of The Greater Than Podcast, I speak with author, Chavis Fisher. We discuss how we can uplift the children and youth in foster care and raise their voices. In addition, we share the importance of foster children understanding that they are not alone in their journey—that there are people who love and care for them.
With over eighteen years of legal practice, Chavis Fisher has worked with hundreds of foster children, adoptive parents, Court Appointed Special Advocates (better known as CASA) and Department of Child Services agency employees. She received the prestigious Congressional Angels in Adoption Award for her commitment to improve the lives of children in need of permanent homes.
Chavis Fisher is the author of the book, Adopting Tiger, which explores foster care through the eyes of a child. It’s a number one best selling book on Amazon. I couldn’t put it down!

The Greater Than Activity for Episode 6
Natalie’s advice to “lean toward where you are bent” in finding your ultimate calling and purpose in life is extremely valuable. Journal on the following questions—taken from Natalie’s blogpost, Child Welfare: A Call to Duty.
Where does your passion lie? What makes your heart quicken? What is that thing you would do if you never even received a paycheck for doing it? What would you be excited about engaging in even if it were 20 degrees below zero outside?
Answer these questions—listen to the voice within you—and you’ll be on your way to identifying your unique and one-of-a-kind calling.
Leaning in to where we are bent is where true success awaits us.
Making the decision to rise up is where the flames of greatness are ignited.
I’d love to know your thoughts so please let me know how the journaling goes for you.
And, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook.
I hope you’ll join us next time on The Greater Than Podcast.
