177. Rebecca Wellington: "Who Is A Worthy Mother?: An Intimate History of Adoption"

Rebecca Wellington currently teaches in the School of Education at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington.  She holds a doctorate in education history from the University of Washington.  Rebecca’s career in education started 26 years ago on the ocean, sailing around the world on a traditionally rigged tall ship. Through this two-year global circumnavigation Rebecca trained for a US Coast guard captain’s license and went on to work in outdoor education, which sparked her love of teaching.  Rebecca was driven to write a history of adoption from the perspective of an adoptee and to honor the memory of her holder sister and the truth of brave women everywhere.  Her proudest accomplishment is mothering her two daughters, Maria and Victoria.  She and her husband and daughters live in Seattle, Washington.
