Welcome to Healing Puentes

Reconnecting with who we are...

Our mission is to guide adoptees in the search and/or reunion process during the pre-search, active search, and post-search with emotional support/accompaniment.

 

Our vision is to guide adoptees to remember who we are by reclaiming aspects of our identify that have been lost by rediscovering our personal power to reshape our own adoption narrative.

Other things to consider:

 

Many unexpected emotions may arise for all parties involved, including the adoptee, the adoptive family and biological familiy.  As an adoptee myself, finding one’s origin can be healing, unpredictable, and anxiety-inducing, as one does not know what will be learned or found. 

 

There is not a specific timeline for the search, as it is a personal journey, unique to each adoptee.  My own search had various pauses as I needed time to emotionally process the new information before moving forward and connecting with my biological family.  

 

Another area of support is directed toward the adoptive families who may find it difficult/confusing when their family member begins their search for their biological families.  This is a delicate process that can invoke a range of emotions including anger, excitement, fear and insecurities, for both the adoptee and adoptive family member(s).

Regardless of the final outcome of the search, healing and understanding of this journey can occur if everyone involved is open to the process, clear communication,  and accept whatever it may bring. This takes courage, self awareness, and patience.

Mission: Bienvenido
