S1 Ep. 8: Mick
Show Notes

In this episode, Sarah and Louise discuss Chapter Eight  of “The Primal Wound” by Nancy Newton Verrier and then they speak to Mick Smyer.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Mick started out life in St. Vincent’s, a Catholic orphanage, where he lived until he was adopted at six months old. His adoptive mother was 50 years old when she adopted Mick, but she lied about her age to the adoption agency (and to her husband). She was also mentally ill. Not surprisingly, Mick eventually became a psychologist, with a specialty in geriatric mental illness. Listen now to hear Mick's journey in finding his biological family.
