“I have a network of adoptive parent friends that I’ve been in contact with online (and several in person) for the last 10 years or more. They are the people who were (and still are) interested in my experience as an adoptee, as it helped them understand what their child might be working through. They have never shut me down or tried to silence me. They listen and some have even asked me personally about things in order to help their adopted child/ren. There are some AP's there that truly are willing to listen to the adoptee’s voice. Perhaps not many - but they are there.” - Holly
