Our primary purpose is to learn from the adult adoptees. Our secondary purpose is to have a safe place to discuss difficult things and ask for help from experienced IA families and adoptees. We are dedicated to listening to grown adoptees, not rebut their experiences. Due to the sensitive nature of some of the discussions membership is restricted to members of the adoption triad -- adult adoptees, birth parents, and a-parents.
We allow discussion of our faith journeys as it affects our parenting. But be respectful. No proselytizing or criticism or faith statements, that might discount or deny another's walk. Use the delete button if disinterested or alert the moderators to something you find offensive.
Please consider a group that was specifically designed to address the needs and interests of adoptive parents who are waiting or have very young children. Discuss-IAT
