Adoption: The Making of Me
S1 Ep. 12: David
Show Notes

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

Adopted at birth by a pioneering Hollywood television couple who were responsible for creating some of the most iconic series of our time, including I Love Lucy, David grew up in the midst of show-biz Los Angeles far removed from the devoutly Christian world of West Virginia, where his biological parents were from.  But it was this very Christian faith that compelled David's unwed college-age birth mother to carry David to term, clandestinely flee from West Virginia to New York City to give birth to David, and then relinquish him into the arms of the progressive TV industry couple,  whose open-mindedness ultimately freed David to search for and find his biological parents.  Listen now to hear David's story of coming home to roots that are in marked contrast to his life as an adoptee.
