EP 138: Why It’s Important To Grieve Adoption With Adoptee Vanna Padilla
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:------------------------------------Have you ever paused to consider the intricate weave of emotions and identity that comes with being adopted? Vanna offers us a window into her soul as she recounts the heartfelt journey of being 'half adopted.' Her personal narrative is layered with the complexities of family, the essence of ethnicity in forging one's self-concept, and the longing for transparency in conversations about our beginnings.Through our engrossing dialogue, we unpack the importance of openly discussing race and ethnicity with children, especially within adoptive environments. It's not just about recognizing skin color or cultural heritage—it's about fostering a sense of belonging and addressing the mixed emotions that adoption can stir. Vanna's insights reveal how acknowledging the intertwining of loss and love can become a catalyst for healing, both for adoptees and their families. The exchange of stories highlights the necessity of grieving as a foundation for growth and understanding in the adoption narrative.JUMP RIGHT TO IT:------------------------------------0:00 Introductions with Vanna Padilla8:07 Importance of Acknowledging Adoption and Ethnicity16:38 Facing Rejection and Finding Grace24:27 The Complexity of Adoption and FaithHave you been adopted or do you know of anyone who has been?CONNECT WITH VANNA:------------------------------------Instagram: @vannapadilla_npTikTok: @vannapadilla_np Wild InterestWild Interest is an audio magazine created by kids for curious minds of all ages....Listen on: Apple Podcasts   Spotify Low No Drinker Magazine PodcastMeeting the people & brands leading the low-&-no-alcohol revolution!Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifyContact The Show!Website: http://www.ahnafulmer.comYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@imperfectlyempoweredpodcastInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/ahnafulmer/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ahnadfulmer

EP 125: Ahna’s School of Life: 5 Lessons I Learned In 2023
2023 has been a year of embracing vulnerability, from the stage to the deeper realms of personal relationships. I've discovered the transformative power of therapy within my marriage, and how our journey towards adoption has opened our hearts in ways we never imagined. We'll explore these intimate stories and the profound lessons they carry, which have shaped our lives and our show's content. I've found that saying "yes to less" has not just decluttered my space, but also my mind, paving the way for a lifestyle that celebrates presence over possessions. As the sun rises on a new day and a new year, I've come to cherish the tranquil mornings that have redefined my well-being. I invite you into the serene practice of stillness and sensory breathing that has revolutionized my start to the day and birthed the Early Morning Habit program. Designed to help you find peace in the quiet moments before dawn, this program is a testament to the power of mindfulness, gratitude, and the simplicity of life. As we bid a grateful farewell to 2023 and look towards the horizon of 2024, let's take with us the courage to grow, the joy of storytelling, and the unwavering belief that our best days are still ahead.
