93 episodes

Adoptees telling their stories of life in adoption, the search for their birth family, and how their reunion attempt turned out. Stories that make you laugh, cry, or simply say "wow".



This podcast has two purposes:

1) To help you explore your own feelings about your adoption, accept your desire to try to understand your own personal history, and decide for yourself whether a search for reunification with your biological relatives is right for you. It will help you understand how others have dealt with issues related to protecting the feelings of their adopted families who may be supportive of your search, or question your motives and present challenges.



2) For non-adoptees, this podcast will help you understand some of what is in the minds of your friends, family members, or others who are adopted, but you didn’t know if you should ask some of the questions that will be answered here.



The stories will make you smile or bring you to tears, but they’re all true as told by the people who lived them. In them, I hope you’ll find something that inspires you, validates your feelings about wanting to search, or motivates you to have the strength along your journey to learn “Who Am I Really?”

Great insightful podcast

This podcast has been very helpful during my own journey in finding my birth parents. Hearing other peoples stories about their journey helps you prepare for your journey.

Blown Away

I am an adoptee who has been in reunion for 35 years, which has been amazing, awful, and complicated, I LOVE this podcast. Sometimes when I listen I am saying "yes!" "that's right" "oh man, I feel you" out loud. I am truly blown away at how good this podcast is. Damon is the perfect host, compassionate, curious, validating, and unfailingly kind. I'm so grateful to have found this.

Thank You

This podcast has healed a lot of wounds I didn’t know I had.
Recently found my biological family and it’s been a wonderful experience. My father did not know about my existence and is thrilled. My birth mother has no desire to meet me. Hearing other people’s stories has helped me with this experience.
Thank you again Damon for all of your hard work and also for sharing your story!
