73. Mary Herbert: "Because Adoption"

Mary Herbert as a mom of four biological children, has walked through parenthood as an adoptee trying to understand more about her own childhood through raising children of my own.  

Each chapter of Mary's life has brought new questions and curiosities that many will never understand. Walking through parenthood, or young adulthood or even your later in life chapters learning about where you came from can be alarming and frankly disconcerting. 

Pairing with someone who has been through the wringer as far as a story of adoptee search and reunification is a benefit only another adoptee can provide.

Mary Herbert is on Instagram @becauseadoption and her website is Becauseadoption.com
