Today on the podcast, Maria Hernandez shares her story as an adoptee. She tells us how she was given to her adoptive father by her birth mother in the Philippines, and later raised for several years by her adoptive aunt while her father relocated and set up a life for them in Canada. Maria discusses how difficult it was for her growing up not knowing her full story, and her journey to finding the answers today. We discuss important adoptee issues such as mental health, growing up being adopted, relationships, having children, and searching for ones roots.
