Curators at AdoptionHistory.org believe that we help shape the future through researching and preserving the past and present and sharing our knowledge with the world. We invite you to see things anew through the lens of our outstanding members from Adoption Truth & Transparency Worldwide Information Network and the researchers and field investigators at Against Child Trafficking. You’ll learn more than you ever thought possible and expand your mind in a miraculous way. We always keep our information fresh through our special events, educational lectures, and temporary exhibitions. Join us at the Adoption Trafficking Awareness Symposium and see life through the lens of individuals who had been adopted domestically, transracially, and internationally. You will also hear the vitally important narratives from siblings and families separated by adoption and parents of loss.

Rev. Dr. Janine Vance (Myung Ja), a Pacific Northwest author of numerous award-winning books and Director of Against Child Trafficking, is the visionary and program director of the educational event intended to shine a light on the crisis of adoption trafficking. When she discovered that children are advertised as “orphans” or “needy” within advertising campaigns despite being sourced from living families–which include siblings, aunts, uncles, and grandparents, her life purpose has been to protect, inform, and educate the public against the exploitation of families and commodification of children. She works closely with Against Child Trafficking in Europe, India, and the USA to monitor the industry. Her wish is to be able to provide potential scholarships to benefit families separated by adoption adoptees. Adopted? Not sure if your adoption documents are 100% accurate? Other fellow adoptees have voiced the same problem.
