On this week’s episode of Adopting Hope, Sasha and Joyce welcome mother and daughter, Lisa Tchividjian and Charlee Tchividjian-Sherry. Lisa and Charlee share a passion for single mothers and for children who are at-risk for entering the foster care system.

Lisa and her husband, Stephan, began fostering when their three biological children were teenagers. Now, Charlee is the Founder and Executive Director of Ēma, a ministry that exists to transform the lives of young, single mothers and children in crisis though mentoring relationships, parental education, and career development. Tune in to hear about Lisa’s experience as a foster mother, as well Charlee’s experience as a child growing up in a home that welcomed foster children, and how those experiences guided them to support birth mothers.
