Family Secrets: A Takeaway Listener's Story

The Takeaway
Last week, we talked with Madeleine Albright about her life, and her discovery in adulthood that she was Jewish.  We asked our listeners: have you ever discovered a secret about your family or identity? We received a lot of responses, including one from  Loren Levinson.  She was adopted when she was a baby and raised her whole life in a Jewish household.
