On this week's episode we are honored to have Kelly Treadway, a 2 time Adoptive Mother, teacher and the official graphic designer for Lifetime Healing, LLC join us on the set!
Kelly talks to us about the challenges of having two very different Birth Families and how to love them well despite their differences.
We have to remember that we are not all the same and we have different needs, wants, emotions. We have to learn how each individual family needs to be supported.
We were so lucky to have Kelly come on and talk to us about these complex relationships.
From The Host: I have been so blessed to have Kelly in my life. Not only is she our talented graphic designer but she is an amazing Mother in two VERY different open adoptions. I hear from Adoptive Parents all the time asking what to do if one birth parent is more active and involved than the other. I have also seen the tragic cases where one doesn't go as planned so they just close ALL adoptions because it is the "easier thing to do". Kelly shares some powerful insight to these complex relationships and how they have learned to balance the different family members involved.
