Commissioner Lawrence Weekly is an active member of the community and strives to really improve the quality of life for families in Clark County.

Now, he's launching a podcast called "Relative Unknown."

Weekly is launching the groundbreaking podcast at 7 p.m. on Nov. 15 through GooglePlay, iTunes, and his website.

A local leader and politician in the Las Vegas area, Weekly is a fierce advocate for Las Vegas youth and has devoted his life to serving the community.

However, he's kept a secret for over 46 years -- he is adopted. As a young child, he overheard family members discussing his adoption and never discussed what he heard with anyone -- not even his adopted mother. The secret and emotions that come with it have been buried a long time until now.

As November marks Adoption Awareness Month, Weekly is partnering with Swell Story Media to present Relative Unknown. The series is dedicated to telling an unbelievable story of adoption and self-discovery as the journey through Weekly's family tree is detailed.
