Friday Favorites: April 13 2012

Happy Friday everyone! Here are some of our favorite finds from around the web this week in the world of child welfare, foster care and more.

Favorite Share: People Passing the Pinwheel. You guys made our month with your enthusiastic response to our Pass the Pinwheel effort in support of Child Abuse Awareness month. This image made its way around the web this week at lightning speed. If you haven't shared it yet, what are you waiting for?

Favorite Foster Parent: Foster Parenting at Midlife. When your nest is empty, why not fill it up again? That's what Jude Cockerton did and she doesn't regret it for a moment.  

Favorite Person: Samantha LaGrasse. She's a social worker, a blogger, and as of this week, a television news personality. She amazes us with her advocacy and her willingness to take on additional responsibilities to get the word out about her work with emancipated foster youth

Favorite Words: Robin Campbell talks about working with Dave Thomas. Can you imagine how awesome it was to work with Dave Thomas? What's that you say? You don't spend your free time wishing you could've worked with child welfare legends like we do?

That's strange. 

Anyway, you have to read this blog post from Ms. Campbell about her fondest memories working with Dave Thomas for more than 15 years. Sigh.

Favorite Forecast: Sunny and 70 degrees in Northern California this weekend? You know where to find us! (Hint: it begins with Farmer's and ends with Market.)

Have a great weekend everyone!

PS - If you have any links you think we should include in Friday Favorites, send 'em our way
