Can you imagine looking for your birthparents for years and then getting a response and a picture 2 minutes after sending a facebook message?
Blood ties are deep. We talk about Zach’s younger brother asking about him before he knew he existed and what the reunion with his bio-grandparents was like.
We discuss how people react when Zach says he has two moms and two families.
Karen talks about Zach knocking on her door, his adoptive parents and telling people their story. It’s oddly intimate to tell an adoption reunion story. It seems to tap into people’s experiences with their family of origin and can inspire people to open up or shut down.
Part two of our talk with M. We talk about maternity leave for adoptive parents, how pervasive adoption is in our everyday lives, and inter-cultural and inter-racial concerns when adopting a baby that doesn’t look like their new parents.
Our music is “Love is Love, You is Love” by Monplaisir.
