Lady, today is a powerful episode with an amazing woman. In today’s episode, Dr. Dom and Terri are joined by Opal Franklin who shares with us part of her journey as a transracial adoptee.  Her complex and nuanced journey is unique while still having threads of commonalities with other multicultural and/or adoptive families. Opal’s story is one in which you will walk away learning something new and feel empowered to engage with others about their origin story.

Quote of the Day:

"There is nothing more delightful

Then you, My Love.

Even though you do not think so,

I hold you closer

Than anything else

That has entered my life."
