Adoption: The Making of Me
S2 Ep. 6: Mikayla
Show Notes

In this episode, Sarah and Louise discuss Chapter  Six  of  “Journey of The Adopted Self” by Betty Jean Lifton and then they speak to Mikayla Mains.

Mikayla is a dancer teacher, small business owner and SAHM. She was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri where she now resides with her husband and two children.  After spending years in and out of the foster care system, she was adopted at age 12 to a large family in which she became the 10th child. She battled with questions about her past for years until she finally found her biological mother on Facebook and began to piece things together. She now wants to dedicate herself to educating others on the dark sides of foster care, advocating for those still in it and shed light on the emotional scars it can leave even after adoption.
