Lessons from the Adopted Life
Kevin Hofmann is a storyteller at heart, as well as an accomplished writer and public speaker. He was born in 1967 - a turbulent time in Detroit - and was raised in a transracial family by white parents. For Kevin, his experiences coalesced into a lifetime of contemplation and self-analysis. During this Monday Evening Speaker Series presentation, Kevin will share with us the "Three things he has learned from being adopted."
About Kevin Hofmann
By the time he turned 2 years old, Kevin Hofmann had survived an abortion, been relinquished by his mother, adopted by a family of another race, and woke up to a burning cross in his front yard. He was born in Detroit in August 1967 two weeks after the riots that changed that city forever. It was out of these amazing circumstances his life began. It is out of these experiences he tells his story; a story of struggle and joy, pain and passion, and most of all hope.
