Guest Elle Klassen and Host Lisa Ann prepare for another weekend where the ideology of great parenting is celebrated. You guessed it, we jump right in, speak our lived experience and it gets real! We sit down and spend our time together to address another key topic for many adoptees - Fathers.
We want to welcome Elle Klassen back to Wandering Tree Podcast. Elle is an artist, wife, mother, friend. She was adopted near the end of the baby scoop era in 1970, in Canada. She found her first family four years ago, and has since become estranged from her adoptive parents. She has thoughts on adoption. Thoughts that have grown, and evolved during the past few years. She figures it's time to say them out loud, even if they may be difficult for some to hear.
