Mom's Story

StoryCorps has an entire series of recordings of people interviewing their mothers, such as the interview Joshua Littman conducted that was turned into an animated video. Some of these interviews were included in the book Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps. Friday, NPR's Morning Edition broadcast another StoryCorps interview, in which Scott Miller asked his mother Jackie about her decision to adopt him.
"We must have talked about it even before that," 73-year-old Jackie told Scott at StoryCorps in New York City. "You know, we're very methodical people."

But while Scott Miller knew he was adopted, he didn't know what prompted his parents to choose adoption to grow their family.

That's when the 73-year-old revealed a family secret she'd been holding for over half a century. Link to audio. to text.
