Join the private AdoptionTruth and Transparency Worldwide Network on Facebook.A worldwide meeting place, news hub, and human rights advocacy space for families separated by adoption. We shed light on the hidden side of adoption.
Who are we? We are not just adoptees—we are adopted people with a purpose. We are advocates and activists for proper implementation of the UNCRC. We advocate for the rights of mothers, fathers, children and families severed by adoption, and against the present adoption system. We also provide articles and blogs to educate the mainstream on the history of adoption and current worldwide practices. We question and analyze the adoption industry on a global level, not just a national one.
Collectively, we, “adoptees,” are taking control of what adoption means.
This is the first group that has invited parents and family members of adoption-loss to participate in a discussion. Until now, long lost family members of adoption have been excluded from the industry dialogue and from adoption policy making. We are the first group to invite parents of adoption-loss to speak about child protection. Please understand that the topic is very sensitive and personal for all involved—especially for family members, parents of loss and adopted people. Many members have been aware of unethical adoption practices for many years but resisted by the mainstream from sharing stories, therefore, comments by some members might be blunt in nature. Critical point of views might be construed as extreme or radical by those who are not aware of human rights in accordance with the United Nations or have been sheltered from all sides of adoption.
Due to the sensitive nature and very personal experiences, we cannot be responsible for the attitude and actions of members. The discussions can be heated so please be considerate of everyone’s life experiences. No threats please. If discussions explode out of control or defeat the purpose of our mission then we have the right to 1.) Delete threads 2.) Remove members

“I believe information is power. The intention of my writing is to empower you. I believe that you deserve to know more than the politicians in the field so that you can approach the discussion with confidence, knowing to the fullest extent possible, your human rights.
As someone who has researched the industry for two decades, I’ve noticed that adoption facilitators have had the monopoly on the adoption discussion for generations.” – Janine Myung Ja
“In Adoption History 101: An Orphan’s Research, author and adoption rights activist Janine Myung Ja uncovers the ugly underbelly of the modern world-wide adoption industry and recounts some of the heartbreaking and even shocking truths about historical adoption movements and programs. In a well-researched, well-referenced text which she humbly describes as “a short summary,” she educates, advocates, and warns.” ~Kimberlee J Benart
More then a forum, it is a movement!
