Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am your host Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
I am delighted and thrilled that my long-time friend, Kim Mooney has joined me on Tea Toast & Trivia to discuss her book, “Hidden Daughter-Secret Sister, A Story of Adoption.”
Kim has a degree in mathematics and a master’s degree in leadership. Her career has been an eclectic one, moving between teaching and hospital administration and back to teaching. She retired in 2018 after fifteen years of teaching at Royal Roads University in Victoria, BC. In addition to her academic responsibilities at Royal Roads, Kim ran a consulting practice for fifteen years.
With her first published story in 1970 came a prize—a typewriter. A few short stories and a series of poems were written on that machine and then it was set aside in a drawer. This is her first published book.
Thank you for joining Kim and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. “Hidden Daughter, Secret Sister” is available on Amazon.
And a special thank you, Kim, for sharing your profound and valuable insight into the psychological repercussions of adoption and how they can be addressed. As always, your candour and compassion come together to encourage a deeper appreciation and recognition of what it means to be family.
I invite you to meet up with Kim on her website Kim Mooney and on Goodreads. You will be inspired by Kim’s journey from her life as an emotionally insecure child in 1950s Canada to a determined adult searching for her roots.
