Wandering Tree welcomes Mary to the show; a first mother who was forced to relinquish her child for adoption. The day we spoke was a first for both myself and Mary. Neither of us really knew what to expect when it came to having a conversation on the topic of adoption from our differing viewpoints. It was a new experience for me to be talking to a first mother who was not my own; and for Mary to speak to an adoptee not her own.
The end result is this fantastic episode on just how hard it was to be a pregnant teen and how the situation was handled with little regard to her own feelings and mothering desires.
Mary is welcoming of all first mothers and adoptees, supporting their journeys and sharing to help others.
