Tell Me More with Amanda Nielsen

038. Don Black - on adopting me, being my dad, and loving my mom

October 6, 2020

In this episode, you'll hear me chatting with my dad about a variety of topics. He walks us through some fertility struggles, which eventually ended with my adoption and surprise pregnancy with my sister. He talks about being in the army and having to be away from his family for long periods of time. He tells us the secret to a 40-year marriage, and how the "spark" isn't the most important part of a relationship. I loved everything about this episode, other than the crap audio. Sorry about that guys. Let me know if you have any questions, reach out at
