With “Independence Day” as a backdrop, July is the perfect time to discuss both the personal elements of independence and identity and the bigger broader concepts of freedom related to the adoption experience.  Today, working to truly move in a spirit of independence around access to information and healthy identity development is urgent work. Host April Dinwoodie and her guest Tim will explore all of this and more in this episode of Born in June, Raised in April.

Taken from his mother at age three, Steve Klakowitz lived a terrifying existence.  Caught in the clutches of a cruel foster family and subjected to constant abuse, Steve finds his only refuge in a box of books given to him by a kind stranger.  In these books, he discovers new worlds he can only imagine and begins to hope that one day he might have a different life – that one day he will find his true home.  This June, our host April Dinwoodie sits down with Steve Pemberton to talk Father’s Day, family and faith and his book and film “ A Chance in the World”.

It’s February and as a transracially adopted person, the convergence of Black History Month and Valentine’s Day is powerful and punctuating all at once. As an adult, I have come to understand that any shot I have at truly deep, romantic love is wrapped up in my ability to understand my full identity and love my whole self.  Heck, isn’t that true for all of us adopted or not? Listen this month as I talk with dear friend, ex-boyfriend and meditation guru Light Watkins about relationships, family, differences of race class and culture and identity.
