As the last speaker for our Ako Si Series Season 1, we introduce Pastor de la Cruz.
In Pastor's 1st foray into social media, he uses his 20 year experience in the juvenile justice system to talk about mental health
through his work he learned how to see what a healthy family should look like.
What is the ideal attempt to show a healthy standard so they can be successful in life
all people and adoptees especially could really benefit from even a few sessions of therapy
Adoption issues sometimes can be related to medical issues
Pastor was adopted at 8 months old and his parents told him before he was 10 years old.
Pastor learned Filipino martial arts and even visited Philippines
He referenced a Richard Pluman podcast - Popular thought is 50% [of adoptee behavior] is nature (biological family) and 50% is nurture (adoptive family). Studies indicated that 0.3% is from nurture. but 50% from birth parents still come through.
