WPLN’s StoryCorps: Becoming a Family

Listen Now:

Chris, Kate, and Maryanna Clarke

Kate Clarke’s mother died when she was six. After that, she went to live with her aunt and uncle, Chris and Maryanna. The couple wanted to adopt Kate, but they were hesitant because they needed permission from Kate’s estranged father. That’s when Kate says she took matters into her own hands.

The Clarke’s story was produced here at WPLN. Visit storycorps.org to find ways to record your own story.
