109 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?”

Powerful

Damon handles these interviews with such compassion and asks the right questions with such tact and gentleness. I’m learning so much as I cry through these stories. Just curious do families listen or respond to the interviews?

Thanks for enlightening me!

I met you at the home of my cousins,Mike and Donna as my cousin Mike was transitioning from this life due to cancer. I began to listen to the podcast from that time forward. I have learned so much about an Adoptee’s journey that I never would have otherwise known. Also about how unfair the laws are! You’re an excellent interviewer and host. The flow and editing are impeccable. I am a musician and I also drive Lyft. Many days I binge on several episodes at a time. I also told one of my close friends about your podcast. She’s an Adoptee and she thanked me. Your story is amazing as well. I’m all in.Keep up the good work!
