The Mother-Adopted Child Connection
This week's special guest will share a story she kept secret for a very long time. I wonder how many other women have done the same?
Karen Chaston is a returning guest on "Tips for the Transition." We all have many stories woven into our lives, and I'm honored that Karen wants to share this one with us, too.
Karen's first-hand experience with being a teenage-mother and giving her child up for adoption is filled with trauma, shame, and judgment.
You'll hear how those emotions affected her into adulthood, as well as how she connected with the woman her first-born child had become.
If you were adopted or have adopted children as your own, Karen's story and the lessons and tips she shares are worth hearing.
If even one tidbit from this episode hits a nerve or speaks to your heart, please take a quick second to RATE THE SHOW using the star-rating below the video.
Then SHARE IT, so we can extend our reach to more women, and let them know they are not alone.
