77. Part 2/2 with Julian Washio-Collette, a double-adoptee, blogger in reunion with birth family members.

Julian Washio-Collette is a baby scoop era domestic double-adoptee, relinquished and adopted as an infant, and relinquished and adopted a second time at the age of nine. His life spans a diverse range of experiences, including extensive touring of the United States by bicycle, living in Buddhist and Catholic monasteries and other intentional communities, and a lifelong commitment to healing and growth. He holds a master’s degree in theology with a focus on monastic studies. 

Julian currently lives in a small cabin with his wife, Lisa, behind a monastery in the coastal wilderness of Big Sur, California, and is working on a memoir exploring the intersection of adoption, healing, and spirituality. 

His Blog, "Peregrine Adoptee: Wandering Reflections on a Life in Fragments" contains many of his published pieces.
