Adoption Support on Facebook

Adoption support on facebook

Open Groups, Closed Groups and Adoption Discussion pages on Facebook

There are a whole slew of adopting groups and pages on Facebook.  I am sure that this list is just a tip of the iceberg, but it’s a good place to start, plus I can’t stand coping and pasting any more.

Most of the descriptions and language are taken from the pages” about” or the groups descriptions, so not my wording. Also, some pages are misspelled or in all caps, but I left them as they are indexed on Facebook so they can be found more easily if one was to search via Facebook. The links directly to the pages and groups are there as well, but some groups are private and one must join first, etc. The categorization is my own and some groups/ pages bridge the gap to more than one area.  There are 17 pages worth of groups here and it would be insane to try to get it more detailed without doubling up.

If there is a group or page that you would like listed (or not) please let me know and I shall add ( or subtract) a requested.

This is a group started for those of us banned from voicing our opinions in the UAC-Utah Adoption Council group.We are in no way offiliated with the UAC. I encourage everyone to join the council, if you have not already. Your voice and concerns are important. I will remind you to please keep it civil. No name calling and the use of the term “sperm donor” will get your comment deleted. The Utah Adoption Council is a non-profit, all volunteer organization of adoptees, birth parents, adoptive parents, agencies and community groups supportive of adoption.

ITALIADOPTION https://www.facebook.com/groups/italiadoption/ In the period between 1950 and 1970 there have been over 3,700 Italian born “orphans” brought to North America to be adopted by American and Canadian parents.
Most of these international adoptions were initiated by the Catholic Committee for Refugees (NCWC/CCR/CRS) or the International Social Services (IRC/ISS) while some were private adoptions handled by personal attorneys.

    Hello.

    My father was recently able to locate his birth father through a combination of DNA testing and genealogical research. We’re now looking at starting a business to provide those same services to others. The link below is to a questionnaire for anyone that doesn’t know his or her birth father’s identity:

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/myyline

    We’re reaching out to adopted people and their families to get a sense as to whether these services may be of value. As a thank you to those who participate, we’ll select a few respondents to help search for their father’s identity, free of charge. The deadline to complete the survey is EOD Monday, Feb. 15.

    Thanks in advance for your support!
