"Children can heal, parents and caring adults can help.” In a world of hurt – where children and adults live with the lasting pain resulting from being bullied, parental death or divorce, separation when parents are in the military, neglect, abuse, challenging mental or physical disabilities, addictions, exposure to violence and trauma, or lived experience in the foster care or juvenile justice systems Sue Badeau brings a message of healing and hope.
Whether you are seeking to change hearts, minds and values through inspirational events, support workers in developing their skills or strategically change the systems that serve children and families, Sue is the person you want. As the lifetime mom of 22 children by birth and adoption, with experience caring for dozens more children in foster care and juvenile justice, and a 30+ year professional background, Sue offers the perfect marriage of lived experience with professional expertise. She delivers all of this with warmth, humor, and down-to-earth realism.
We are planning a two-week mission trip to Imara International in August 2015, a non-profit that empowers Kenyan women through education to build a self-sufficient future for themselves, their children, and their community.
