Me in the orphanage.

When I was growing up, there were few resources to consult about being adopted.

We’ve included the most noteworthy authors and artists who have something to contribute to the dialogue about the experience of being adopted, and invite you to contribute your own thoughts.

In the future, we plan to jury artwork submissions by adoptees and to award scholarships. Stay tuned…
