S*x Has a Price Tag
Pan Stenzel is an adoptee whose fifteen year old biomom was r*ped and place her for adoption in 1964. She is the oldest of 8 children… 7 adopted…1 biological, and her extended family includes 38 adopted children in all. With her degree in Psychology, she began work, right out of college with young girls who were planning to place her child up for adoption.

"After being approached by a group of concerned parents, she was asked to develop a two-hour program for the Rally for Life 1992. The rally was about s*xual abstinence. She developed the program by mixing media and music, her own talk, and the testimonies of young girls. The response of students, parents and the community was so overwhelming that Pam began to get numerous requests to speak all over the Midwest."

In 1993 a video of her presentation was made and it took off. She got so many requests for engagements that she went on a speaking circuit full time. Read more of her story HERE.

I heard her in an interview and she is funny, warm and a wonderful Christian woman who understands the heart of an adoptee.
She believes she was something beautiful that came out of something bad and she wants to someday meet her biomom to thank her for choosing life.

Hi! I LOVE Pam Stenzel...we know of her from our old days of working with teens. We used large parts of her tapes to talk about s*xual purity/abstinence and about S*TD's. I'd love to see a presentation in person sometime!

Thanks for the post.
