More about Melissa Corkum
Many adoptees struggle with issues of identity and belonging. Some have never met another adoptee or may have been the only person of color in their town.
As a transracial adoptee and adoptive mom, Melissa is passionate about giving the adoption community the words that help them make sense of their experiences. She loves how the Enneagram helps you realize you’re not alone and nothing is wrong with you. It can help you find belonging and facilitate transformation.
She and her husband, Patrick, have six kids by birth and adoption. They’ve taught her a lot about what creates thriving parent-child relationships…and what doesn’t.
Certified Enneagram Coach, Studied under Suzanne Stabile, Safe and Sound Protocol Practitioner
“Being in a room with other adult adoptees was life-giving for me. Seeing pieces of my adoption story and the relationships within it through the lens of the Enneagram brought me new insights.” ~Jennifer, Type 2
“It’s been really helpful to gain a deeper understanding of the Enneagram — as a lens through which to consider the ways being adopted has affected me, and, in turn, the ways my number has affected the way I’ve understood/reacted to life as an adoptee. I’ve appreciated Melissa’s Enneagram experience and wisdom. She’s savvy on all of the numbers and adept at asking prompting questions that spur good reflection and conversation.” ~Sara, Type 4
“Melissa helped me learn to connect with others more efficiently.” ~Christina, Type 8
