Born in June,                             Raised in April

Through a rich and personal lens of adoption, nationally recognized thought leader and transracially-adopted person, April Dinwoodie, creates a space for herself and her guests to candidly explore all matters surrounding adoption, identity and family, one month, holiday and transition at a time. 

Born in June, Raised in April is an authentic conversation about the beauty and complexity of our closest most powerful relationships with our families and ourselves and how those relationships impact our identity and place in the world.
