"I have had the unique experience of working on writing the written content for these Adoption Search and Reunion videos. As an adoptee it was fascinating to learn about the process and how many different tools are available to use in a search. My own search and reunion was very short as I only used Facebook because my adoptive mom was friends with my birth mom at the time I began my search. I am grateful for the work that has been done with this video to help other adoptees search for their birth parents."
