I hope this message finds you well. I imagine that thinking about your child who was given into for adoption, whether by force, or by your own will, may provoke some difficult thoughts or feelings. Please know that this is natural and understandable, as there are many reasons why a child is placed into into adoption.
As an adoptee myself, I want you to know that many of us do not hold resentment towards you or the how the adoption occurred. Many of us just want to know where and who we come from and reconnect with our biological roots and identity. Knowing this information regardless of the circumstances can bring closure, wholeness, and a better understanding of ourselves and our identity.
Your decision to search for your son or daughter, brother or sister is a personal one. I am here to support you in the way that best suits you, whether it be emotionally or logistically (for example, getting access to a DNA test).
All information that is shared is confidential and is only used for the search to connect you with your family member.
Thank you for your courage.
