Great insight on all things adoption
I always forget that my uncle was adopted because he is so much like the rest of my family that you’d never know he didn’t share our genetics. He, and my grandparents who chose to adopt, have always been a huge reminder to me of what family really means and how important it is that every child grows up in a loving home. This podcast is a further reminder this truth. Hank sheds light on how difficult it can be for children to find a family, for parents to give up a child, and how we can all take part in supporting parents who open their homes and hearts to children in need of family.
Wonderful story of a Mom sharing her journey to adopt 2 boys from Russia. Informative. Heartwarming. Well worth the time to listen.
Amazing podcast and a very interesting format
I listened to the first two and I can't wait to listen to the 3rd. Hank has got some great guests and he's an amazing storyteller.
Definitely check this podcast out!
