Shownotes

Simon Benn was adopted at 5 weeks old and told about it so young he doesn't ever remember not knowing. He didn't experience any adoption trauma until he hit 40 when he found out his childhood teddy bear was a gift from his birth mother. This caused an eruption of anger, feeling rejected and unloved. That kickstarted a learning journey that led him to heal and then want to help others. He created the Thriving Adoptees podcast so guests can inspire listeners with their stories and empower them with their learnings. He also speaks at events for adoptees and adoptive parents.
