Interview Summary

Interview with Kellie Adams - Dexter, ME


In this September 6, 2011 interview, Kellie Adams begins by discussing her childhood in Dexter, Maine. She shares stories of her love for horseback riding and growing up in a tight-knit family in a rural area. She also speaks about her mother?s pregnancy with her, as well as the births of her younger siblings.

Kellie continues on to speak about the abusive relationship she was in when she became pregnant for the first time. She recounts the pain of marrying the child?s father against her family?s wishes, and the stresses that led her into depression after the birth of both her first and second child.

She discusses separating from her husband, and the struggles she continues to face coming to terms with the past. Kellie speaks not of the things in her past that she would change, but rather how she looks forward to doing things differently in the future.
