Post-Adoption Program

Adoption is a lifelong experience.

The journey lasts a lifetime. So does our commitment. We are dedicated to supporting adoptees, birth families and adoptive families in order to promote stability and fulfilling family relationships.

Katie & Caitlin Embrace Their Children’s First Families

Katie and Caitlin, their daughters and their extended family, have created a constellation of people to share their lives with. “Our family has grown. We’ve been invited to Christmas, and we go down to the farm and we hang out with the aunts and uncles. I feel like our lives have been really enriched, but it was always in the purpose of keeping the girls connected to their people. That has felt like we’ve forged really amazing relationships with their birth families and it’s been incredible.”

Amara’s Commitment

We believe adoptees and birth parents are the rightful owners of their truth and that knowing your own truth has the power to heal. That’s why we’re leading the adoption community through comprehensive and ethical reviews of adoption files to make amends and evolve best practices. And, our expert staff are here to help adoptees and birth families in their request for information

We believe openness is a lifestyle that has its ups and downs, just as all family relationships do. Our desire is for adoptees and their families to feel supported in pursuing healthy relationships with one another by receiving support and resources to navigate these complex relationships.

We recognize the power of shared experience and seek to create opportunities for adoptive families to build community with one anotherUnderstanding that birth families are oppressed within the child welfare system, we are always looking for ways to amplify their voice and understand their needs.
