I was adopted at 5 weeks old and told so early I don't ever remember not knowing. My childhood was good and adoption wasn't an issue. At 40 I found out that my childhood teddy bear was gift from my birth mother. This caused a lot of anger and distress about being unloved which started me on a journey which eventually led me to do what I do today. Sharing what I've learned to empower adoptees starting with tackling 3 myths about adoption.

Here are some of things I'm doing as a volunteer with RAAs, adoption agencies, councils and charities:
Interviewing adoption teams to bust myths about who can adopt and the level of support provided to encourage more potential adopters to come forward.
Sharing those interviews on my social media channels and creating video/audio clips and text for websites.
Reviewing websites and providing guest blog posts to encourage adopters and support them.
Guesting on Zoom webinars to support adopters and adult adoptees.
