Renee Gelin comes on the podcast to tell her story, and discuss her organization, Saving Our Sisters (S.O.S). Renee lost her son to adoption in 2011. She lacked the resources and support at the time to parent her son, and believed she was doing the best for him by placing him for adoption. After placement she began learning and experiencing the lifelong psychological affects that adoption has on both the adoptee and first family. She also began to realize that adoption, in her case, as well as many others, was a permanent solution for a temporary problem. Renee founded SOS to help women in the midst of a crisis pregnancy keep their children, if they wish to parent, and promote family preservation. SOS has a network of “sisters on the ground” to help educate vulnerable women considering adoption, and find them resources and support in their area. Currently, SOS has helped preserve hundreds of families. If you or someone you know is considering adoption- please reach out to Renee at the links below. If you would like to help Saving Our Sisters, they are always looking for sisters on the ground to help women all over United States. You can also donate to SOS through their website, a small amount goes a long way in helping a family stay together.
