Group Description

ITALIADOPTION is a virtual community intended for all members of the adoption triad (adoptees, birth parents/siblings, adoptive parents/siblings) involved in the Italian American adoption experience.

In the period between 1950 and 1970 there have been over 3,700 Italian born "orphans" brought to North America to be adopted by American and Canadian parents.

Most of these international adoptions were initiated by the Catholic Committee for Refugees (NCWC/CCR/CRS) or the International Social Services (IRC/ISS) while some were private adoptions handled by personal attorneys.

This Yahoo! Group provides you with the PLACE to share your experience and questions, meet other PEOPLE like you and find the THINGS (Resources, Files, Bookmarks) that will assist you in the arduous task of searching for ones origins.

As a member of ITALIADOPTION you will be expected to support the PLACE, respect the PEOPLE and contribute to the THINGS to make it a valuable experience for all involved.
