StoryCorps: Kirsten Widner & Alex Locke

41 year old Atlanta attorney Kirsten Widner has spent the past few months living with her biological son,  Alex Locke, for the first time.

Alex is now 19 years old. He was adopted as an infant to the parents he calls Mom and Dad, and he grew up on the other side of the country. At StoryCorps Atlanta, Kirsten told Alex about her decision to put Alex in an open adoption, in which they’d still have the possibility of a relationship.
