69. Laureen Pittman: "The Lies That Bind, An Adoptee's Journey Through Rejection"

Laureen Pittman is a paralegal by profession and worked for lawyers and law firms large and small for over 20 years after graduating from college with a degree in political science. She also happens to be adopted.

Laureen started blogging about her journey to discover her identity in 2013. As her own story began to evolve, she realized that there was a much larger truth that needed to be explored and shared. She wanted to bring her story to life—not just for herself and her family, but for other adoptees who yearn to learn their own truths and for families touched by adoption who want to understand and value the heart and soul of an adoptee. You can find her on-line at www.adoptionmytruth.com. Her memoir, The Lies That Bind, An Adoptee’s Journey Through Rejection, Redirection, DNA, and Discovery, was published in 2019.
