The Boy With a Past

A learning sequence for ESL learners - Sec. 5

Students will listen to a podcast about a teenage boy who gave his twin babies up for adoption when he was fifteen years old. Years later, unable to stop thinking about his son and daughter, he searches and finally is able to get their names and finds them on Facebook. He writes the twins a long letter explaining his choices from long ago. To this day, they have yet to answer him.
