#23: My 2 Parts in the Triad -Lisa’s Story of Being a Birthmom and Adoptive Mom

lisa qualls birthmom adoptive mom

Have you ever felt like you're standing in two worlds simultaneously? We're not referring to science fiction, we're talking about holding two of the three roles in the adoption triad.

In this week's episode, Melissa interviews Lisa about being a birth/first mom and an adoptive mom. Lisa talks about her experience of losing her first son to adoption, grief and loss, bitterness, healing and restoration, and how she became the most unlikely adoptive mom.

There's lots of vulnerability in this interview, and quite a few tears (we had to stop recording at least once). It's tender and personal, please listen with care.
