Unique families are built on very individual experiences. Just as a fingerprint is never alike, neither are any two families. There are many types of adoption; private domestic adoption, public foster adoption and international adoption. Within those types of adoption are other subsets like infant vs older child, closed, open and semi-open, as well as trans-racial adoption and other variations. So while many adoptive parents or birth parents will come together for support and friendship, their families, while similar, are also drastically different. Now tell us your family’s adoption story in the comments below.
