Natural Moms Podcast #145

This week I spoke with Melissa Fay Greene, fellow Atlanta resident and author of several books, including No Biking in the House Without a Helmet.

Melissa is the mother of 9 children. Her first 4 came to her the usual way, and the second set came via adoption.

Melissa talked with me about her beautiful large family, her decision to adopt internationally, suffering with post adoption depression, the challenge of bringing a new child into the family, life with several spirited boys in the house, whether her mothering style has adapted over the years, and how her biological children have benefited from her decision to adopt.

I loved this interview! It lasts a little longer than most. I hope you take the time to read Melissa’s book. Instead of painting a perfect picture, it portrays a realistic one, complete with tears and laughter. You can read more about Melissa and her family at her website.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever listened to any of your podcasts, Carrie, where I was crying one moment and laughing the next. That was great!
