102. Pandemic Partnership: Kenya & Cheryl

In this 10 part series we will have conversations with couples and individuals who continue to navigate the Pandemic either in partnership or without partnership and to dive deeper into how relationships are handling this ongoing pandemic as we enter the second full year. 

Navigating the mother daughter relationship can be tough on a good day... Now imagine living with your mother through a global pandemic. Mother, Daughter, duo Cheryl and Kenya are best friends, roommates, and just a blast to be around. Marisol and Adam discuss with them how their relationship changed during the pandemic, how Cheryl is seeing a shift back towards multigenerational living, how Kenya made the decision to move across the state back near her mother, Cheryl's departure from her long time church over covid practices and Marisol & Adam's favorite Cheryl quotes.

About the Podcast

Reading Aloud
Welcome to the Reading Aloud Podcast, a place where the creative, emotional and hilarious aspects of relationship communication are explored in real-time, by a real Married couple. Marisol and Adam are a married couple living in Asheville, North Carolina. Outside of the Podcast, Marisol is an entrepreneur, who owns SolReflection, a therapeutic image consulting firm (she's a style therapist) and Adam works for Dogwood Alliance, a environmental non-profit organization. After dating, marriage, and lots of travel, the couple went on a long fertility journey. That journey lead them to IVF, a tremulous pregnancy, post partum depression and an amazing life altering miracle kid, Neo (all while recording the ups & downs). These days Marisol and Adam are raising a toddler, navigating the surrogate process to add to their family, and starting the egg retrieval/IVF process again after a miscarriage. Tune in as the couple provides you insight into how they communicate, navigate and thrive through married life, parenting, being an adult, and living in the world today.
