Kim Evey is a Los Angeles-based actor, writer, and stand up comedian. She has appeared in numerous commercials and TV shows, written for children's animation, and created and starred in one of the first web series on Sony's Crackle.com entitled "Gorgeous Tiny Chicken Machine Show." She produced Felicia Day's trailblazing series "The Guild," a web show so successful that it was actually put on display in The Smithsonian American History Museum. As a stand up comedian, Kim's online clips have been viewed over 8 million times. She is the proud Mom of a boy who is five going on fifteen.

I met Kim through a story telling event where she shared her journey into motherhood through adoption.  Her story touched me so deeply.  I knew I had to invite her onto the show.  What I didn’t know at the time was that Kim is also an adoptee.  She was adopted from an orphanage in Korea when she was 2.  Her journey from adoptee to adoptive mom so beautifully demonstrates the magic of adoption.

Listen in to hear Kim share:

  • How motherhood fuels her comedy career
  • Her indecision around becoming a mother
  • The moment she knew she actually did want to become a mother, and was ready to pursue adoption
  • Her journey from a foster home in Korea to her adoptive parents in the US when she was 2 years old
  • How her being an adoptee influenced her choice to adopt her son through open adoption
  • The process of being one of 3 chosen prospective families to adopt the baby who would become her son
  • The most profound and magical moment of meeting her son, Charlie
