Podcast – Part 3 | Searching for a Biological Parent | The Phone Call

This is Part 3 in a series about my best friend, Dr. Mcayla Sarno. With permission, I’m going to share Dr. Mcayla’s journey in searching for her biological father, Andy. In this episode, Mcayla candidly shares her feelings — in the moment — as she is about to reach out to Andy for the first time. Today, you’re the proverbial “fly on the wall” because that initial phone call was recorded live. Prepare to be moved because this FIRST conversation between Mcayla and her biological father is simply beautiful and overwhelmingly touching. Get out the Kleenex, girls!
