Episode 5: Open Adoption and Cultivating Love Between Bio & Adoptive Families with Molly Rampe Thomas

On this episode of The Greater Than Podcast, I speak with Molly Rampe Thomas. Molly is a licensed social worker, and Founder and CEO of Choice Network, a pro choice adoption agency that, at its very core, is founded on Molly’s love for her daughter’s biological mother.

We discuss open adoption and inspiring a culture of honor, gratitude, and respect between bio and adoptive families. In addition, we discuss the immense need for  families to consider adopting older children and sibling groups from the foster care system. To learn more about Choice Network and Molly’s work, visit: choicenetworkadoptions.com.

A note on this episode: I believe that listening, openly, to different perspectives is essential if we are truly going to grow, heal and transform the adoption community. Please listen to Molly’s words with an open heart and mind.

The Greater Than Activity for Episode 5

Journal on what it might look like to go “back to basics” in your own life. Could that mean that you focus more on the women in your life? Might you allow time to fully see them and hear them in order to better understand their journeys? What if you also, as a woman, gave yourself the gift of focusing on your own heart just a little more? I know for me, I’ve let go of allowing social media to dictate my every move. I went back to basics and instead of scanning the pages of Instagram or Twitter at night — I light candles and go deeper into God’s word. I fill myself up and allow myself to feel the spirit within me and the boldness that is born of that truth.

I’d love to know your thoughts, so please let me know how this journaling goes for you.

And, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook.

I hope you’ll join us next time on The Greater Than Podcast.
