There are over 2 million children with an incarcerated parent in the US. In this episode, we speak with Kate, an artist who works to maintain relationships between children and parents in prison.
In this episode, we draw links between the 60's Scoop and today, where coercion and disempowerment continue to be central themes in mothers giving up their children for adoption. We speak with a mother named Kat about her experience of surrendering her child to adoption in 2001. We also speak with Indigenous adoptee, Nakuset about the systemic removal of Indigenous children and the impact of intergenerational trauma on adoptees parenting their own children.
Other guests in this episode: Historian Dr. Allyson Stevenson and Julie Duchesne from the Sisters of Mercy Museum.
Join us for our very first episode of "Out of The Fog" on CKUT 90.3 FM where we discuss gratefulness in adoption, the importance of adoptee communities and much more with Indian-American adoptee, Shaaren Pine (@shaaren) who featured in an Upworthy video "The things adopted kids are afraid to talk about for fear of sounding ungrateful" this past June 2016.
