This past Sunday, several of our contributors were invited by Emelie Jeffries, host of Voices of Our People on Two Worlds Indigenous Radio, to participate in a panel discussion on Veronica Brown (aka Baby Veronica).
The archived recording of the show is now available on the WMNF site and will be accessible through Sunday, August 25. Click on the best format under "Listen Again," then fast forward to the second hour of the program to listen to Lost Daughters on Voices of Our People.
Many thanks to Emelie and Two Worlds host Alvon Griffin for providing the opportunity for adult adoptees to speak about this significant adoption case. The show reached 73,000 people when it aired on Sunday!
