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:E18) All I Know, Sacred Stories: Grace, Part 1

In the first of this two-part series for All I Know, we meet Grace and learn about one of the things that runs a thick highlighter over her strength. Even when one can survive - or even thrive in the midst of it - I think we can all agree that cancer sucks. Apart from being a Survivor, Grace fascinates us with her life as a Medico Legal Death Investigator and Aerial Circus Artist. Yep. She hangs from ceilings. By chains. And makes art and poetry with her body. "As my occupation, I dissect death. At the same time, I actively stare down my own mortality and shake my fist at its taunting. And also - I have, in fact, run away with the circus." Who can say they have walked these shoes? Only Grace. Pick up the first part of Grace's story here and prepare to catch even more light in Part 2! ...
