Globe and Mail Article

Check out this article from the July 31st edition of the Globe and Mail's Family and Relationships section, titled Unearthing the Roots of Adoption. The main point of the article is that adoption agencies, such as Children's Bridge, are mandating support programs for adoptive parents based on the experience of the first wave of international adoptees. It's reassuring to know that the word is getting out there. And having had first hand experience with the awesome people at Children's Bridge, I know that this is grounding breaking work. These innovations to adoption support are in large part due to the testimonials of adoptees and the advocacy work that they do. Foremost among them is Mihee-Nathalie Lemoine, based in Montreal, who founded GOAL, Global Overseas Adoptees' Link in Seoul. If you are not familiar with GOAL, go to our Links section and find out about all the amazing supports and opportunities they provide. Many birth parent searches begin with them.
