adoption: a gathering

Birthfamilies, adoptees, adoptive families. Fear, hope, shame, pride.

For so long, we've pushed adoption into the shadows.
We've whispered about it, lied about it, and pretended it didn't exist.

Recently, we've brought adoption out into the open with activists and talk shows, open records and open adoptions. Adoption is becoming increasingly visible, and our sense of community is building. We're talking to each other. We're sharing our stories.

adoption: a gathering is a space where our conversation can grow and deepen.

It's also a space where we, the adoption community, can create new ways
to think about adoption, to talk about adoption, and to define adoption.
This is the place for breaking down barriers within ourselves and within our community.

Together, we can reclaim our past and shape our future.
