Episode Notes

Welcome to the Colombian Influence Book Club! We are diving into chapter 8 of the Primal Wound: Understanding the Adopted Child, written by Nancy Verrier.

Chapter 8 sparks the conversation surrounding mental health issues for adoptees, and common issues adoptees may feel. Often these mental health challenges lead to identity issues, which we also touch on in this discussion.
