Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Information Network

A meeting place and news hub for families separated by adoption.



Co-founded by the Vance Twins

We remove the myths about adoption.

Adoption Truth and Transparency Worldwide Information Network (ATTWIN) was initiated in 2011. We are a unique activist organization that uses various mediums to fulfill its mission to find resources, scrutinize, investigate, critique adoption policies and procedures, raise awareness, and share diverse adoption experiences. Simply put, our goal is to create a place that gives a well-rounded perspective on the adoption processes and policies. Members include domestic, late-discovery, transracial, internationally adopted people, and families separated by adoption, from every continent.

The purpose of the diverse group has been to: validate the vast experiences of adopted people:

  • balance the professional field of adoption;
  • encourage global discussion;
  • inform and empower all family members separated by adoption.

Advantages of having an expanded bird's eye view of the industry include support from and for others placed in similar situations and connection with fellow equal-rights advocates and activists.

We work together to empower each other and create change.

Adoption Truth utilizes various forms of mediums to fulfill our mission, such as our first published book, entitled Adoptionland, and Rare Adoption Books for Adults.
