On the radio: Motherhood Unplugged


I was on a new LA radio show on KPFK 90.7 FM last Saturday called, Motherhood Unplugged. It was a great experience! Amy Simon, who is both host and creator, contacted me at the end of July to see if I would be interested in coming on the show. She found me through an essay I wrote called, "Where life is a bit bumpy with a BOY and a GIRL 10 months apart." I had submitted it to LA Parent magazine this past winter for an essay contest on motherhood. It details how BOY came into our lives through Open Adoption, and the shocking discovery of my pregnancy with GIRL when BOY was an infant.

Amy provided a fabulous environment in which we all felt safe and valued for our work. It was lovely. If you'd like to listen to my piece, please click on this link. There is an introduction to the show and my reading starts at 7 minutes 45 seconds into the show. And if you have time to listen to the whole show, you're in for a treat. There are some very talented, funny mom writers out there!

If you like the show, please go to http://www.kpfk.org/ , click on Program Comments (on the left) and tell them to move the show into a better time slot! Amy Simon has got something going on with Motherhood Unplugged! Here's to Mothers who Write!

  7. I actually got to hear most of the show and I loved it! You really do have a lovely speaking voice.

    I loved your story. I wasn't aware that Boy's was an open adoption. Clearly his birth mother chose very wisely.

    God is in His heaven and all is right with the world.
