At BraveLove, storytelling is core to our work. We believe stories can inspire and educate. But if mishandled, they can harm and even exploit individuals. Within the context of adoption, there are lots of people involved in a story - the child, the birth parents, the adoptive parents, extended family, etc. So who's story is it to even share? In this webisode, we're talking with licensed counselor Emily Morehead about storytelling and things to consider before you hit publish. Don't miss this. Whether you're connected to adoption or not, you'll walk away learning something like questions you should ask yourself before sharing, how to own your own story, and other helpful resources.
