012 Jana Lenon - Finding Family
Play • 24 min

Jana talks about the loss of her father and the dissolution of her family at a young age.  When her mother spirals into alcoholism, the siblings end up in foster care.  

Here she talks about loss, change, the destruction of a family, and the discovery of another.  When she could be bitter, she's remained positive.  She lifts others wherever she is, and you’d never know that there was once a darker side to her life.

Even in the telling she avoids the dark and keeps it bright.

Quote to watch for: "I wanted to adopt some kids...and I went down to the police station to get fingerprinted, and there was this lady laying on the sidewalk...and they walked her in...and I looked and it was my mother."
