Finding the right homes:
As an adopted kid herself, Lisa was always interested in finding the right homes for other kids. So, she began working with the ABC network and starred on the show, Find My Family. In 2016, Lisa began co-hosting the show Long Lost Family, alongside Chris Jacobs. Talking about the experience of working on Long Lost Family, Lisa revealed,
“Doing [Long Lost Family] has been kinda cathartic for me. I’ve been championing it for a long time because I myself was adopted and I went through my personal journey to find my biological parents. And when I did that, I realized that every person has a story, you just have to know the right questions to ask. And when I found them, I realized what an empowering feeling that was for me to personally go on that journey.”
A champion for adoption, Lisa has been helping families around the world to find the right family. She wants everyone to be heard and to find the closure that comes with adoption.
