014: I Lived on Parker Avenue [with guest David Scotton, star of documentary]
David Scotton and I discuss his journey to meet his birth parents, how he navigates his relationship with both his birth & adopted families and his current advocacy for adoption.
Adopted at birth and raised in Louisiana, David Scotton is on a journey to Indiana to meet the birth parents he’s never known. His tattooed birth mother, Melissa, and reserved birth father, Brian, anxiously wait for him, concerned David will reject them for decisions they made before he was born. I Lived on Parker Avenue is a short documentary about a mother’s agony in choosing what’s best, the joy of a couple starting a family, and young man’s search for where his life began.
