There are so many stories of adoptions. Adoptees looking for their birth parents and birth parents looking for the children they lost. If you are an adoptee or birth parent, there is a very good chance that your biological family is looking for you too. By telling your story, you get the opportunity to let the world know about your experience. The good and the bad. These stories can have a great impact on those that shape the legislation. Your story can help bring about change.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of my mother and wonder about my father. I wonder about their family, what they did, where they came from and how they grew up. The migrations and hardships that made them who they were.
Telling your story is easy. You can write it out in a word processor and paste it into the form. Stories are arranged by date of birth and then location of birth of the adoptee. If you are a birth parent, enter your childs birth date and where they were born. This way the child can find their birthdate and find your story and connect with you. Please do not provide full names of others or contact information in your story. We will provide a way for your family member to reach you without exposing your contact information to those that would harvest it and use it in a malicious or soliciting manner.
Every week we will promote an adoption story on our Facebook page. This will help generate visibility for a possible reunion. In addition, we have several promotional plans to generate exposure to maximize the response rate for an adoption story. You choose the level of promotion and we will get it to the target market that is best for you based on the geographic and demographic parameters of your situation. We are serious about the success of this program and to ensure that the information that is published is true and accurate, we are charging a one time $12.00 fee to publish the story. This helps prevent persons from creating ficticious stories that may hurt or mislead others in their serch. In addition, the cost helps keep this website and all stories online for those searching. Think of it this way, you are helping the other adoptees on this website stay visible just a little bit longer and that is all it may take for success.
Your story should be online within 24 hours and available for your relatives to find you. Being proactive will increase the chances of your success. Tomorrow is not a guarantee. Don't wait for your relative to take the first step, post your story and help them find you!
