Demystifying Adoption Through Education and Awareness with Sam Karliner

About five million Americans are adopted. It might be you or someone you know. Despite this, outdated misperceptions still persist. Forever Families Through Adoption works to demystify adoption through education and awareness. Sam Karliner is a husband, father, and Ironman triathlete. He is also an adoptive parent and sits on the board of directors for the organization Forever Families Through Adoption. Through his Ironman triathlon races, he came to realize that there could be an even greater accomplishment in competing by using his races as a platform to help educate and inform others about adoption and help so many people create forever families. In 2011, Sam began to wonder just how far he could push his body and mind in an endurance event. That led to his first Ironman race. While it was a fantastic experience, he saw other people share their journey of Ironman as a way to help raise awareness to a cause that was important to them. Since then, he has been raising awareness and education about adoption, specifically for the organization Forever Families Through Adoption located in Rye Brook, NY. He takes all his supporters along with him as he writes their names on the frame of his bike and uses their support as inspiration during a very long day of 140.6 miles.

You Are Not Your Worst Mistake with Toby Dorr

Toby Dorr joins SecondWind for the second time to share more inspiration from her life lessons after aiding in a prison escape and landing in prison herself. Having never had so much as a traffic ticket, Toby Dorr shattered her mold of perfection by helping a convicted murderer, a trainer in her prison dog program, escape in a dog crate from Lansing Correctional Facility. Her story is a lesson in perspective. Instead of focusing on everything she lost, Dorr made a conscious choice to use her twenty-seven months in prison as a period to reflect on her life, heal emotional wounds, plot a course for the future, and embrace the sisterhood of women she encountered behind bars. Far from easy, her prison sentence was gut-wrenching and devastating. But a pivoting revelation during a stay in suicide watch gave her purpose and direction. Through her memoir, Living with Conviction: Unexpected Sisterhood, Healing, and Redemption in the Wake of Life-Altering Choices, Dorr takes readers through all of the heart-pounding, tear-jerking, heartbreaking, eye-opening experiences that touch the most primal human need, the need to be significant.
