Guidelines

  • Participants (parent/guardian & adoptee) understand a total of 8 exchanges will be sent (4 from mentor; 4 from mentee from adoptee) during a period of 12 months (1 year). More correspondence is acceptable and encouraged.

  • AdopteeBridge will facilitate the letter exchange process, so no contact information will be shared. All letter exchanges will take place via email communication.

  • Mentors and mentees will not have any direct contact; neither will the parent, nor the guardian will have contact with the mentor.

  • Participants have the option to share first names, birth names, city and state of residence, school attending, age and date of birth, and photographs/drawings. No other identifying information will be exchanged.

  • The majority of exchanges will occur via email; however, if the mentee wishes to send correspondence via mail or a small gift to their mentor, they can send a gift to AdopteeBridge via postal mail, AdopteeBridge will agree to facilitate 2 mail exchanges during the M2M program

The mentee will be responsible for purchasing the gift and the postage of mailing it to AdopteeBridge. There will be restrictions as to what items can be sent overseas and there is no guarantee the adoptee’s respective chingu will send a gift in return.

  • A deposit of $15 will be due at the time of registration, with the balance of $60 due at the time a match is made. This will cover the AdopteeBridge costs of editing, coordinating matches, mentor background checks & training, and ensuring safety of the participants*
    *If financial limitations should prevent you from participating, please contact us: mentorship@adopteebridge.org

  • Upon completion of online registration, an email confirmation will be sent to family.
