Blending A Family With "More Love, Less Panic"


Claude Knobler and his wife already had two kids of their own when they decided to adopt a little boy from Ethiopia.

He tells the story of realizing this in his memoir More Love, Less Panic

Claude Knobler joins us to talk about the process of changing his parenting process.
