102. Ako Si Series - Aimee

Co-host and founder Aimee shares her adoption experience;

  • having Filipino American adoptive parents

  • reading through adoption documents at the young age of 9

  • having suicidal ideations as a child due to the overwhelming feelings of isolation from her birth family, the separation of her adoptive parents, and the hidden 'jokes' from external family members

  • felt ostracized from both the Filipino community & American even though grew up with Filipino family and influences

  • always wanting to feel placement, or roots; to be accepted by groups

  • reason for starting AKK is to make sure others don't feel alone in their adoption journeys
