201 – It’s A Journey To Fit In And Connect
Amy, from outside of Chicago, grew up looking visibly different than her family in a way that didn’t meet societal stereotypes for her family’s beliefs causing her to have to explain her adoption more than she might’ve liked.
Curious about her ethnicity and background Amy found links to her birth family through DNA.
In her maternal reunion, Amy found her birth mother’s family shares many of her creative traits and they have welcomed her as their daughter and sister.
But her paternal connections only happened once and seems to be blocked by her birth father’s spouse, even though the man should be able to empathize with Amy for himself.
This is amy’s journey.
