103: Inconceivable Yet True

Carolyn Savage's Journey Through Adoption, Surrogacy & Parenting

Carolyn savage podcast

Adoption: The Long View Podcast, Episode 103

In this episode, Lori talks with Carolyn Savage, who has, perhaps, the twistiest-turniest journey to family you've ever heard of. Starting with an inconceivable snafu with a fertility clinic, within one year Carolyn (1) gave birth to a son she placed in the arms of another, and (2) became a mom to twin daughters who were placed in her arms by the woman who gave birth to them. Those profound experiences give her a unique view of adoption and of being both on the placing and the receiving ends. Carolyn shares how she and her husband have ongoing conversations with their children about the twisty-turny way they all became a family.
