The AAC is a community of adopted adults, parents by birth and adoption,their families and adoption professionals.  We value our members, donors, and volunteers.  Join us and together we will turn our common vision into a shared reality.

 from Jean A. S. Strauss 

Check out this powerful short video by Jean Strauss documenting First/Birth Mother's experiences and feelings surrounding adoption. Many groups opposed to access legislation argue that First/Birth mothers were promised life long anonymity. The evidence though suggests quite the opposite. The stories shared here support the real sentiments of the vast majority of First/Birth mothers throughout the country. Listen to four mothers speak about their experiences and feelings, which highlight the powerful and excruciating experience they each survived. 
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.
