Adult Adoptees on the Kojo Nnamdi Show--Tomorrow!
Adoptee Rights will get an incredible spotlight tomorrow as Amanda Woolston, Susan Branco Alvarado, and Joy Lieberthal Rho are interviewed by Nnamdi on tough post-adoption issues and policy problems. Among topics discussed will be the discriminatory way adoptees in the U.S. are expected to access their original birth certificates.
The permanent link to the show can be found here. You can listen to it live on the web during the noon hour (the last 40 minutes of the hour are expected to be dedicated to these three adoptee professionals). Transcripts and a recording of the segment should be made available on the page sometime after the conclusion of the segment.
I began blogging in 2009 to try to find my original family and ended up becoming an author and activist for the adoption community. Two degrees in social work, two kids, multiple legislative campaigns, multiple published books, two collegiate teaching positions, a clinical practice, and advanced licensing later....I'm still at it and not giving up any time soon.
