Sia went into detail about the adoption process, and the profound effect it had on her worldview.
“I’m a little bit jaded now after investigating the foster system as much as I have done in the last year, because it’s completely corrupt; it’s failing us. My kids have been in 18 different locations in their 18 years.”

Her adult children are going through trauma recovery programs, and they’re starting to enjoy real personal growth.
Sia revealed how recent instances of police brutality have taken a toll on her own mental health.
She’s “very scared” for her children. “I’m embarrassed that it took me to adopt two Black sons to really understand what they go through on a daily basis,”
