Essential Conversations: Recovery Month Edition Episode 1!
September 7, 2023

Laura and her ex-partner were the first parents in MO to have a same-sex partner adoption, but even that legal distinction did not stop the discrimination this queer family faced when seeking medical care for their daughter.
