Her Family's Formation Gives Her Hope For The Future

Sep 26, 2018

The StoryCorps mobile booth was in Oklahoma City in early 2018, and we're bringing you some of the stories that were recorded here. Locally recorded stories will air Wednesdays during Morning Edition and All Things Considered on KOSU.

Adopted families, step families, chosen families. They come together and form in all sorts of ways, but they’re all families. Iva Hoskins came to the StoryCorps mobile booth in Oklahoma City with her mom Amanda Davis and stepdad (or 'pop') Matt Guillory to talk about how their family formed and what that might mean for her future relationships.

This story was produced for KOSU by Rachel Hubbard and Dustin Drew, with interviews recorded at StoryCorps, a renowned nonprofit organization celebrating the stories of everyday Americans.
