    165 [DNA] The Search Maven - Janet Weinreich-Keall

    Before I recorded this show, my guest shared her notes with me and I asked, “are you SURE you want to share this publicly on my podcast? It’s a goldmine of information about DNA!” Janet Weinreich-Keall is back, and when you hear her story, you’ll know why she’s a pro at searching. She walks us through how we should prepare to search, and then we dive into what DNA testing looks like, and how far the tech has come: making it easy and accessible for us to do our own searches. We also talk about the possible ramifications of having your DNA in a database - is your information really kept private?

    162 [Healing Series] Anger

    162 [Healing Series] Anger

    Pam Cordano, MFT and I discuss anger. What is it and why are so many adoptees accused of being “angry adoptees”? We discuss the reasons we have for legitimately being angry. Pamela teaches us about different types of anger and gives us some practical exercises to work on. I find out I’ve been engaging in Spiritual Bypass, and why that is so toxic. Anger is a powerful emotion, let’s harness it to make it work for us, and not against us.

    161 Bernie

    Today I’m honoured to introduce you to Bernie, a late discovery adoptee who has been working the past two years to learn about birth trauma and adoption trauma. Bernie and I talk about how he confirmed he was adopted, what patterns and challenges he had through his life that now he attributes to birth trauma, and what happens when the ‘validators’ of our memories are lost.

Insider's look at adoption

This is an informative and interesting listen. As someone with 2 adoptees in my family I have found this podcast to be valuable to understand some of the feelings and experiences that adoptees have. I look forward to learning more and hope to gain a better understanding of adoption.

Sparlingo ,

Enthralling!

So interesting to hear adoptees discuss their own stories. Brings a lot of perspective to me as someone who has never had to walk that road.
