Curiosity about these factors led adoptee, Simon Benn, to explore the intricacies of being adopted in today's Primal Wound society. In this episode of Moore to Love: An Adoption Podcast, Nicole and Simon dig deep and speak about Simon's experience and perspective as a thriving adoptee.
More about Podcast Guest, Simon Ben
Simon Benn was adopted at 5 weeks old and told so young he doesn't ever remember not knowing. All went well until he found out that his teddy bear was a gift from his birth mother when he was 40. That unleashed an eruption of anger, feeling rejected and unloved. That led to a quest to heal, healing, and a desire to help others. Between 2013 and 2020 he worked in schools, youth centers, and churches to help 1600 kids to less anger, more happiness, and higher self-esteem. He started Thriving Adoptees in 2020 and is a speaker and podcaster working with adoptive parents and adoptees through partners.
