Adoption stories range from very brief expressions of emotion to full accounts of our experiences and longer detailed journals of events connected to adoption in our lives.
Here you will find stories by, about, and for adopted persons, birth/first parents and their families, those on the road to adopting, and adoptive parents and their families. No two stories are alike. Whatever your story, it is worth sharing. You never know how you can be adding to someone’s life by simply showing them they aren’t the only ones... whether they're adopting, placing, searching, reuniting, or just coming to terms with their own situation. In the world of adoption, everyone has a story, and we can all benefit from others' experiences.
