Season 1 Episode 3 Confessions of an Adoptive Mom

Adopting my babies has been one of the greatest honors of my life. But it never dawned on me that society might question my choice, or ask me questions and make comments that I can't believe anyone would be bold enough to actually say.

In this next to the last solo episode before our in-studio interviews begin, I'll tell you some of the craziest things people have ever said to me, how I handled it and how it made me feel.

And a little encouragement for anyone considering foster care and adoption. I can't say it is always easy, but it sure is worth it.

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
