Adoption is an intricate and nuanced process…
Adoptive relationships bring people together. Yet they also come with a set of complexities and ingrained hardship.
As an adoptee, you may wrestle with your identity, craving answers about where you come from and a deeper sense of belonging.
As an adoptive mom, you might struggle with your expectations, how to support your adoptive child with their problems, or whether to tell them about their birth parents.
And as a birth mom, the contradiction between heartache, guilt, confusion, and ease of having someone else raise the child you brought into this world can be a lot to bear.
