Each adoption story is as unique as the child being adopted. Families come together in so many ways and each journey can be an inspiration to others. Our hope is that you find courage through the stories of others to take the first step on the walk of more than one lifetime: yours and your future child's.
Even though we have listed these stories by the country the family adopted from, we encourage you read the stories even if it is not your country of choice. It is often not where one adopts from that is the inspiration found in these stories, but the circumstances that led a family to adoption to begin with.
