Episode details

In this episode, Denna shares her journey of becoming a single mother through domestic private adoption. Denna had to do a lot of self-reflection and research to decide what was the right path for her. After being matched with a family who was seeking adoption for their child, Denna became their son’s mother from the very beginning. Denna, who was born blind, shares how her experience of learning and adapting with her parents has helped her in her approach to motherhood. As a single mother with a disability, Denna has had to build a village on her own to raise her three-year-old son in the DC area, away from her family in Arkansas. While Denna would love for her son to have a sibling, she has decided against it because it would detract from the experiences she wants to offer her son. Instead, Denna wants to focus on giving her son a foundation to have a relationship with his birth family and siblings.
