Colombian Influence
Latinx Adoptees

S2E31 - September 2nd

There is a strong significance for Kate and her family with the day of September 2nd.

Episode Notes

Kate and her sister are both adoptees and September 2nd is an incredibly important day to their family, as she and her sister share it as their Arrival Day, just a few years apart. We discuss the family dynamics, growing up feeling different as an Indian adoptee in a predominantly white town, and how it can feel to be the punchline.

Thank you to Kate for another incredible discussion that allows us to share the adoptee experience.
