Mardie Caldwell, Lifetime Adoption's Founder, also runs an adoption radio show, Let's Talk Adoption. There's a great episode that covers the topic of a fear of birth parents. Author and speaker Patricia discusses the topic of fear with regard to a relationship with birth parents. She offers insight into how birth parents feel themselves, and tips about how to learn, trust and overcome fear.

Listening to this episode is a great way to prepare for that first conversation with a birth family, which is so important. Click here to find this podcast on iTunes.
