Exchange Exemplar: "Make Me A Mother"

WiLPrZ, CC BY-SA 2.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=40528832

"Adopt" and "adapt" are such similar words, when you think about it. 

Susanne Antonetta certainly had to, when she and her husband adopted a baby son from Korea. 

The parents adopted and the baby adapted, and the situation gave the new parents some insight into their own raising. 

The story is told in Make Me a Mother, Susanne Antonetta's memoir.  She joined us in 2014, and we revisit that interview here.
