Dedicated to celebrating the voices of openly adopted adoptees. Helping to provide words for those who are trying to understand these unspeakably complicated and defining moments.
Who We Are
Created by two open adoptees, Openly Adopted is a passion project that is here to support adoptees searching to understand how open adoption has shaped who they are and the families they belong to. We hope to spread a message of hope and compassion to those searching for answers about family and identity.
Through shared stories, Openly Adopted is creating a unique collective to help people navigate their experiences where lived experiences are fully seen and heard. We believe that sharing our stories and speaking our truth can make a difference in encouraging self-acceptance and fostering collective action.
