The Ground We Lived On

by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc and Sarah Kramer (All Things Considered, NPR, 2006)

Reporter and writer Adrian Nicole LeBlanc was named after her father, Adrian Leon Leblanc, and their name is only one of the many deeply loving bonds they share. When Adrian Leon was diagnosed with end stage lung cancer, Adrian Nicole dealt with the impending loss of her father by documenting the last months of his life.

by Kristin Nelson, edited by Dick Miller (The Current, CBC, 2010)

But for Bear Bergman and J Wallace it was an especially complicated decision and process, as both are transgendered men who began their lives as females. Their journey through conception, pregnancy and childbirth is both exceptional and mundane, unique and universal.

by Gwen Macsai (Morning Edition, NPR, 1994)
