EP75: Parenting Challenges With Foster To Adopt Children: Marcy Pusey: Part Two

Diana WinklerPhysical Violence

We have more Marcy for you! This week is the second half of my conversation with Marcy Pusey, who talks about her experience with foster to adopt and raising multicultural kids. She also shares the heartbreaking story of her mother-in-law being murdered in her home. There is so much grace, wisdom and valuable lessons learned in her captivating storyteller style! Don’t miss it!


Marcy is the mother of four humans and two pups, but she’s also tossed pizzas for a pizzeria, acted and sang in a musical, advocated for families with special needs, made appearances in a few movies, and mimed with balloon animals at the Halifax Busker Festival. Marcy is also a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and Certified Trauma & Resilience Practitioner, international speaker, Story Coach, and the best-selling, award-winning author of books for adults and for children. She does her best writing on retreats with a nearby hot-tub, in any castle, and within view of the sea. Marcy loves the smiles and giggles of kids who see themselves in her pages and the tearful nods of adults who realize they’re not alone by her words. You can watch and share her TEDx Talks: “How Story Empowers Kids to Shape our World” & “You Are More Than Your Traumatic Experiences.”

My CTA is a pdf guide that walks people through telling their story in a way that both impacts their audience and brings unexpected healing to themselves.
