Tori Hope Petersen
Tori’s experience in foster care as a former foster youth, foster care advocate, and foster mom fuels her life’s passion to advocate for those who society would consider the “least of these.” Her heart is burdened for the foster care community, foster youth, vulnerable youth, and suffering families.
She shares her life with hopes to let Abba Father be known through stories, to offer hope to the hurting, and to serve people who are often ostracized and left out.

Computers united Susan and Ed before internet dating was a thing. Five years later they crossed an ocean to unite with their three courageous kids Josh, Ruth and Dibora. Today she’s a Family Minister, Coach, Communicator and soon-to-be kids book author who believes people were created on purpose for a purpose and delights in cheering them on.
“In my 25 years of serving vulnerable children and their families, the Entrusted Conference was the best adoption conference that I have ever attended! What made it most valuable was the compassion, understanding, commitment and support demonstrated to those who want to adopt, who have adopted, those who serve in the field as workers, as well as those who had the courage to give up their rights for the sake of their biological children’s prosperity. All in the same room at the same time being poured into and celebrated!!! I was completely blown away and tremendously blessed!!!”
“This was my first time attending the Entrusted Conference and I cannot imagine missing any in the future. I can’t wait for the next one! I walked away feeling rejuvenated and ready to continue this work (for me, foster care). I didn’t realize it was a Christian-based Conference and I so appreciated the worship, prayer, and Scripture throughout the event. The lunch, breakfast items, snacks, flavored water, coffee, and cupcakes were a nice treat. I only regret not getting a massage (free massages were available on-site). Thank you so much for bringing so many awesome speakers!”
“I was reluctant to go. I've been to so many conferences that turned out to be a waste of time and money. But, when we won tickets, I kind of felt like we had to go, lol. And WOW, was I wrong about being reluctant. I left feeling encouraged and empowered. I can't wait to buy tickets so we can attend next year.”
