This is a special episode where I bring you some recordings I made when attending the Concerned United Birthparents Retreat in Carlsbad, CA. I talked with adoptees, first mothers, and a grandmother of loss. We discuss what they learned at the retreat, and what they wish society knew about adoption. If you’d like to hear some of my reporting directly from the event, check out the Adoptees On Facebook page for the live videos I did after each of the sessions I attended.
