Being in the foster system changed Tori’s life completely. There were trauma’s and bad experiences but out of all of this, she became strong in Christ through the love of a few important people in her life like her track coach, her youth leader and her church community.
Some topics covered:
- Foster care system reform: Recognizing the impossibly overwhelming caseloads carried by many social workers, addressing issues that often arise in institutionalized group homes, and more.
- Embracing God the Father even though she had been wounded by so many.
- Seeing how love can change people’s lives and give them hope.
- What it means to be radically hospitable and why the Church should embrace it.
- Struggling with labels and identity as a biracial woman.
