Back in October I did a post about This Is Us, curious about what other adoptees felt about the new series, what they thought, how triggering it was. You can read that brief post here and read the comments if you’re interested.
I still haven’t watched the series.
I have found a better way to keep up without having to decide to watch and invest those hours in viewing it. Two of my favorite adoptive parents have done a podcast series on the show. Parents, who not only have listened to what adoptees have said, all sides of the adoptee experience, and seem to not only get it at a visceral level that there will be many different reactions from minimal to hard about processing having two families, and aren’t threatened by it either.
Worth the time to hear how they see the series.

ABM and Mimi are looking for adoptees to join the conversation, give input into series and their reactions to the series itself. Your voices are welcome, they aren’t into pushing back, just listening and learning. You can leave a comment on the Podcast page here or on the Add Water and Stir facebook page.
