**note when Lorri mentions Phil, she is speaking of Phil Donahue. She worked on his show during the time she placed her daughter.
Lorri Antosz Benson comes of the podcast to discuss her experience placing her daughter for adoption in the early 1980s. Lorri authored two books about adoption “To have and not to Hold”, and “Adopting Hope”. We discuss her life and the circumstances surrounding her placing her daughter for adoption, their reunion, and her work with the adoption community since. We wrap up with what Lorri wishes every member of the adoption triad knew about adoption.
