Show Notes

In this episode of All I Know, we meet Lori.  As an adoptive mom and advocate for ethics in adoption, she shares her experience plunging into the online adoption community with a "baptism by fire" that prepared her to be a voice for the importance of becoming educated about building a family by adoption - from all angles.  But before this chapter, Lori walks us through some powerful self-reflection about her childhood battling sickness, which ultimately empowered her to inhabit her body in a whole new way.  Listen in, and catch all the light you can!

(S2:E19), All I Know, Sacred Stories: Grace, Part Two

In the second of this two-part series for "All I Know," Grace will take us through what happened in the wake of her cancer diagnosis.  This season is full of change and pain... but also flight. Grace finds herself at an aerial arts studio that came alongside her in the dark night of her soul and helped her find a new dawn.  So these days, quite literally, Grace spends part of her time making art and poetry with her body as she flies just below the ceiling, and performs a feat most have not dared to try.    I think Grace is wickedly strong.  And I'm not the only one, because listeners to Part One have already reached out with admiration for what they hear in Grace's voice.  Listen in, and catch all the light you can!

PS - Please forgive our ambient noise, like traffic, birds, and windchimes!  Our conversation was held on an early summer afternoon in the design studio where Francis works.  We opened the outside door to beckon a breeze, and ended up adding a "soundtrack" to our chat. ...
