Who we are

Hi! We’re Joel and MaryBeth Fortner! We married in 2010 and live kind of in the middle of nowhere in middle Tennessee with your 4 kiddos - 2 biological and 2 adopted (and 2 dogs). We started the Fostering Marriage podcast to serve married couples on the foster and adoption journey.

We’ve been blessed with counselors, coaches and resources that have helped us have a strong marriage with great communication, conflict resolution and closeness. We want to pay forward what we’ve learned to you and your spouse.
