128. Jonathan: "It's Okay to be Okay"

Today’s guest is Jonathan, a 58 year old adoptee living the suburban dream in a coastal town south of Boston, MA. He was born in November of 1964 in Albany, NY and grew up about an hour south of Albany. He moved to Boston for college in 1982, where he met his wife during his senior year. They married in October 1988 and have lived with a varying constellation of cats and dogs ever since. They have just one dog now, a miniature Schnauzer named Lucy. He has had a successful career in Human Services and he’s proud of the work he’s done.   

He was welcomed into his paternal family in 2018, and has had contact with his maternal side since 2019
