Show Notes

If you don't follow the YouTube channel 'Yes I'm Adopted, Don't Make it Weird' you'll want to do that right away after hearing from our guests today. Brett Carleton and Dave Overholser join us to talk about the creation of their popular YouTube channel and Facebook page, a common bond as adult Asian adoptees, some of the things you should never say to someone who's been adopted and some of the things their parents did that made a huge difference as they grew up. 

Dave O and Brett also dive into the idea of neuroplasticity and the hope it brings. You're going to love this episode!

November is National Adoption Awareness Month (NAAM) -To read the history of NAAM, click here. 

For those most impacted by adoption - adoptees - the month of November can be a time that brings up a wide array of emotions. So in staying true to our mission here at Empowered to Connect we are spending the month of November listening to the hearts and stories of adoptees who are part of transracial families.
