Ep. 13: Meeting Your Birthmother! (As a Nonbinary Trans Adoptee)

In this episode Ryan spills the beans on what it was like meeting their birthmother for the first time! We talk about the additional complexities involved in being a trans and queer adoptee searching for birth family - incl. explaining one's gender identity and relationship, DNA testing, and fear of rejection. We also touch on themes relevant to cis and trans adoptees alike: What does it mean to forgive? And if we are 'reunited' with birth family, how do we create and sustain meaningful connections?


P.s. Scroll back to Episode 4 to hear about Ryan's birth family search, if you haven't listened already!
