For this episode, Em talks to Jake about his journey through the care system from being in foster care as an infant, adopted at 5 and the lifetime of understanding, adjusting and healing that follows. We talk about forging your identity through case notes and stories from others, the adoption process, how to unpack attachment disorder, meeting your birth parents, discovering your racial heritage in your mid 20s and how trauma affects your self esteem, development and relationships as a teenager and an adult.
