In this episode, Katie Burns shares her heartbreaking story of facing an unintended pregnancy, and being coerced into an adoption she didn’t want, by the very people who should’ve been protecting her. While the trauma caused through this still reverberate in both her life and her now adult daughter’s, Katie has been able to use her experience to become the very advocate she needed herself at 18. She currently runs a resource page for expectant mothers called “The Family Preservation Project,” and also serves on the board of “Saving Our Sisters” (SOS).
