Episode 10 - This Adoptee Life Podcast - Heather Marshall
Welcome to This Adoptee Life Podcast,
Heather Marshall, fellow adoptee, shares her story with us on This Adoptee Life Podcast.
We talk about navigating life as an adoptee, the guilt born out of not having a voice as children, the mask we wear to fit in as adoptees, the fear of everything falling apart, motherhood as an adoptee, and what honoring our feelings might look like while working towards the rocky road of healing.
It was a wonderful conversation and I hope you will love listening to it as much as I did recording it.
Please, don't forget to subscribe to the podcast and leave a review to help other people find us and hear our stories.
Heather Marshall is an adoptee, author, teacher, and coach whose classes, workshops, and coaching focus primarily on helping people access their own stories. This might be to process the past, establish a vision forward or be fully present in the moment. Heather uses a combination of yoga, meditation, and movement to deepen her own writing practice as well as her students'. Her fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction are published in a variety of periodicals and anthologies in the US and the UK. Her novel, The Thorn Tree, was released in 2014. She’s currently on the hunt for a publisher for her recently completed novel manuscript, When the Ocean Flies, a story of longing and love that spans oceans and generations, exploring the hidden past of women, the adoptee experience, abuse and survival, and finding the strength to uncover your authentic self. When she isn’t writing, reading, or teaching, you can find her hiking, traveling, or playing bass drum in a bagpipe band.
