After The Reunion

Norma Kathman and her husband never kept it a secret that their son Ryan was adopted. In fact, Norma closely chronicled Ryan's life just in case he ever chose to reconnect with his birth mother. 

At the time Ryan began searching for her, his birth mother Moira Mangiameli was also searching for him. The two had even performed side-by-side as actors on stage, not knowing that they were related. This summer Ryan and Moira reconnected. All three join Dick Gordon to discuss how they're juggling conflicting emotions in their new relationship.
