117. Adele Rodriguez: "We have to normalize that not adoptions end well."

During times in this episode, there is sensitive content that may be traumatizing to some audiences. Listener discretion advised.

Adele Rodriguez was born in China, first adopted to America and later moved to France. She states, "Being an adoptee not only makes me standout, but it makes me, me. Living in an orphanage wasn’t all that bad, because it was my first home. I didn’t have anything that belonged to just me growing up, but I do have my story. That is mine.  Even though I don’t know my past or where I come from, God has given me a new identity as a wife and a mom. I'm forever grateful to God for the family I have now."
