    Episode 5: W/ Special Guest: Caroline Nguyen Ticarro

    ***Disclaimer***
    Please be advised that the guest's audio was recording from Vietnam with her internet connection very poor. That in turn has led to the quality of her audio to be quite patchy.
    Addie and Jo interview Caroline Nguyen Ticcaro who is the founder of the Catalyst Foundation. Caroline was a Vietnam refugee and became an adoptive mother to twin daughters who are now beautiful young women. 
    Together, they discuss Caroline’s experience of creating the Vietnam Culture Camp which is an an annual family conference for those who adopted children from Vietnam. Since Addie’s younger sister was adopted from Vietnam, her family attended Caroline’s camp for many years in her childhood. Caroline discusses her experience of becoming a mother but also a Vietnamese mother since she herself was raised in a predominantly white community in Minnesota. Caroline touches on her thoughts about race in transracial adoption, the significance of mental health awareness among adoptive families, and where she sees Vietnam Culture Camp going in the future.
