Adoption Search & Reunion

The search and reunion journey can be scary, confusing, and overwhelming. It can also be exciting, fulfilling, and joyful. The first step in the reunion journey is to make sure that you're emotionally ready. There are many possible outcomes to acknowledge, both positive and negative, before beginning. Consider going to support groups or a professional counselor to make sure that you're prepared.

There isn't one right way to conduct your search. You have many options to consider. Online adoption registries are a great resource. You can both search for that one person or you can enter your own information, in hopes that the person for whom you're looking is also searching for you. You can also use social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter, to get the word out about your search.

The reunion journey can take anywhere from days to years. It's more than just a journey to find that person. It is also a journey of self. During this time, you'll discover new things about yourself and your situation. You'll come to a better understanding of your feelings, experiences, and perceptions. And when you do find the person for whom you're searching, you'll have a new journey ahead of you: building a healthy relationship and moving forward.
