87. Melissa Corkum: "The Adoption Connection" and the Enneagram as a tool for growth

Melissa Corkum and Lisa host the podcast, "The Adoption Connection". She is a Certified Enneagram Coach and helps members of the constellation. Her bio states: "Many adoptees struggle with issues of identity and belonging. Some have never met another adoptee or may have been the only person of color in their town. 

As an adoptee and adoptive mom, she is passionate about giving the adoption community the words that help them make sense of their experiences.

Melissa and her husband, Patrick having six kids by birth and adoption have taught them a lot about what creates thriving parent-child relationships…and what doesn't.
