Show Notes

In this episode, Sarah and Louise discuss Chapter Sixteen  of  “The Primal Wound” by Nancy Newton Verrier and then they speak to Ann Marie Morello.

Ann Marie Morello is a licensed mental health counselor, Adoptee coach and self proclaimed “truth warrior.” She owns a boutique private mental health practice in Suffolk County, New York. Ann Marie was a closed domestic adoption, was in foster care, and has been in reunion since 2017. We will hear how being an adoptee shapes her work as a licensed trauma professional, and the personal fulfillment she receives volunteering as co-facilitator of the Long Island chapter of Adoptees Connect Inc. She credits finding her truth with the help of a professional genealogist, DNA, and personal tenacity.  Ann Marie continues to uncover more secrets since reunion and is currently handling the emotional pain of secondary loss/estrangement with first family.
