Jillana Goble

Author and speaker Jillana Goble has been a foster mom, birth mom, and adoptive mom—in that order—since 2003. She holds a master’s degree in teaching and is passionate about prospective foster parents approaching foster care with eyes wide open. She expands on the concepts in this article in her book No Sugar-Coating: The Coffee Talk You Need about Foster Parenting. Jillana’s new memoir, A Love-Stretched Life: Stories on Wrangling Hope, Embracing the Unexpected, and Discovering the Meaning of Family, is a worthwhile, engaging read for anyone who cares about vulnerable children. You can order it wherever books are sold or directly from Tyndale House Publishers
