Global Adoptee Talk


Welcome to Global Adoptee Talk, a podcast about the experiences of international and transracial adoptees. Adoptees share their stories, and we explore issues related to loss, identity, and blood ties.

Mar 19, 2018

Melanie Nichols and Marcie Moller are 45-year old twin adoptee sisters from Taiwan. They were born at Puli Christian Hospital in Puli, Nantou County. In this episode, Melanie and Marcie talk about what it was like growing up in Indiana, then Texas and eventually, how they were able to find and reunite with their birth mother in Taiwan on Mother's Day 2010. Melanie and Marcie also share some of the difficulties they've experienced in their relationship with their adoptive mother.

Marcie (pictured above) has spent the past twenty some years full-time mothering and volunteering for her kids' schools and extracurricular activities while championing causes for vulnerable children, including foster children and their families. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, baking, sewing, hosting international students, home improvement projects and has recently taken up yoga. She has four kids from 16-21 years old and a sweet German Shepherd puppy named Indigo.  

Melanie is a wife and mother to four sons. She is an endurance athlete who teaches group fitness and personal trains. While her passion is yoga, she also enjoys cooking, crafting, and adventuring. A perfect day would be spent with those she loves.
