My name is Molly Sebastian and I am a Casting Producer working on a special adoption reunion episode of a popular documentary-style show that airs on ABC. The documentary-style show is called “Wife Swap.” Please don’t be thrown off by the name – “Wife Swap” is a family-centered program that airs on ABC primetime. The premise is simple: two moms from two different families have the opportunity to swap lives for a week to experience what it’s like to live a different lifestyle. The goal of the swap is for both families to take away something positive from the experience – both by teaching another family about their beliefs and values, and by learning something new about the way other people live.
We are currently working on a special episode for “Wife Swap” featuring an adoption reunion. We are looking for a female adoptee who wants to be reunited with her birth mother. We will conduct a search on her behalf and, if possible, contact her birth mother. Before a meeting takes place between the adoptee and her biological mother, they will have the opportunity to live each other’s life. This will be a traditional episode of “Wife Swap” in that the adoptee will switch lives with her biological mother for one week. The idea is that this will be the most complete and hopefully fulfilling type of reunion, an immersion into the other person’s life, rather than a quick and brief introduction. This is the opportunity to know everything there is to know about one’s birth mother and the opportunity to experience her life, first-hand. And likewise, she will do the same. At the end of the week both couples will meet for the first time to discuss the experience, what they learned about each other and what they hope for the future as their relationship continues to grow.
We are looking for a family where there are at least two parents living in the home, and at least one child who resides there full time. Families who are chosen to participate on the show will receive a $20,000 honorarium. Referrals are welcome and if an individual refers a family that is selected for the show, we offer a $1,000 finder’s fee.
This will be a fully supported environment that will involve professional counseling, support and information throughout the entire process. I am sure you have many questions and I look forward to speaking to you and explaining more about this process to you.
Interested adoptees can reach me ASAP at 646-747-7945 and if it’s after 6pm, please call my cell phone at 786-385-6339 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org AND email@example.com. I look forward to speaking with you.
Sincerely, Molly Sebastian
