    Adoptee Connection

    in Family

    Please join host Pam Dixon Kroskie on her newly structured radio show. Pam produced a successful radio show for a National Non-Profit for over three years and over 70,000 listens. Her previous guests were Michael Reagan, Patti Hawn and Daryl McDaniels from RUN DMC just to name a few. Pam also is an author herself of a children's book "Jack and Emma's Adoptee Journey"  Pam is also the President of HEAR- Hoosiers for Equal Access to Records- a non profit that has introduced legislation in Indiana- for adoptee rights.


    Pam's first guest in this series will be Sherrie Eldridge:


    A twice-reunited adoptee, Sherrie Eldridge is a straight-shooting, transparent, and compassionate author, speaker, and trainer in the field of adoption. Her books are research-based, yet woven within are poignant messages pounded out on the anvil of her own adoptee heart.


     This is what makes Eldridge unique! 


    One adoptive parent said she had a beautiful heart because she had the courage to tell him what his daughter might experience.


    Her first book, Twenty Things Adoptive Parents Need to Succeed, is required reading by many adoption agencies and universities. She has also authored six other books. Sherrie helps readers and listeners to understand the adopted child’s perspective on adoption and how to deepen connections between parent and child.


    Sherrie has been married to Bob Eldridge for 49 years. They have 2 married daughters and six grandchildren. For more information: http://SherrieEldridge.com

    "The Heart Of A Lion: w/Adoptee Celeste Seda"

    in Self Help

    A multitude of issues may arise once an individual becomes aware that they've been adopted.  Feelings of grief, struggles with self-esteem and identity development issues are the more common.  Statistics state that nearly 3 out of every 4 adopted children ages 0-5 are read to or sang to every day.  It also states that well over half of all adopted children eat dinner with their families at least six days per week. The misconception: “Will the adopted child be loved as much as a biological child?” has been proven to be false.  Celeste Seda, a native New Yorker, shares her story in a loving adoptive family.  During this interview she reveals her life, expounds on her dreams and says her adoptive family has always made her feel that she is loved and has been supportive of her dreams to pursue a career in acting and modeling.  www.celesteseda.com
