12. Growing Up Adopted - Jeanette Jolley
Around the World with The Archibald Project kicks off National Foster Care Month with an interview with adult adoptee from foster care, Jeanette Jolley. Jeanette takes us through the emotions of growing up knowing she was adopted but not knowing where she came from or her family heritage. She sheds an important light on using your life and skills to advocate for others and even shares about the time she met her birth mom on live T.V. with Richard Simmons (which you will want to watch, link to the left!).
Jeanette is a television producer and has worked on shows such as: Emmy award winning Extreme Home Make Over, Blue Collar Millionaires, the CMA Red Carpet and countless others! Jeanette is passionate about using her life to advocate for orphans and vulnerable children and we are so excited to bring you her inspiring interview today!
