EP 6: Search and Reunion Expectations - Jane Sliwka from Jigsaw Queensland

Jonah is joined by Jane Sliwka, a post adoption practitioner at Jigsaw Queensland, to chat about the support that is available for adoptees, as well as what to expect searching and reuniting with birth family.


Jane is a post adoption practitioner at Jigsaw Queensland Post-Adoption Centre. Jane has had a long-term affiliation with Jigsaw Queensland, having volunteered in the past for the organisation and served on the Management Committee. Jane holds a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and a Masters of Social Work Studies. Jane's honours thesis was about adoption, attachment and self-esteem.
