Our Adoption Journey - Me and My Hubby

It's National Adoption Awareness Month! Listen as my husband and I talk about our journey and how he felt when I told him (while we were dating) that I didn't think having a child biologically was in the cards for me and that I didn't want to try any infertility treatment, I just wanted to adopt.

We talk about it all from how the suspicions about my infertility were confirmed after a great deal of pain led me to see my doctor and the doctor's visit we both had to make to convince my doctor adoption was all I needed - in order for me to get the relief I needed.

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.
