For adoptees, and their families by birth and adoption, adoption is a life-long journey that revolves around identity, family, and community.  Adoption is complex.

Searching, finding, reuniting, reconnecting: these are all life-changing decisions.  No one understands the emotions involved like those who have gone through it.
