Adoption: The Making of Me
Katie: On the Outside Looking In
Show Notes

Katie is an ESL teacher from Pennsylvania and was adopted in 1966 at the age of six weeks.  She grew up always knowing she was adopted, but became the people pleaser in a huge Irish Catholic family always feeling like she was "on the outside looking in".  After having her first child in 1995, she contacted the adoption agency to obtain her medical history and was warned, "These reunions don't always go well".  Katie waited until after the birth of her second child to inquire again only to discover her birth mother had inquired about her the exact same week. Things went well with the reunion, but led to some interesting discoveries about her birth father. 

Also in this episode, Sarah and Louise discuss Megan Culhane Galbraith's "The Guild of the Infant Saviour".
