OurHistory

What is OurHistory?
An adult adoptee discussion group—by adoptees, for adoptees…

Come meet other adult adoptees, in a safe place*, to discuss shared experiences, similarities, and differences as adoptees. While each adoption story and journey is unique, ultimately, we can connect with one another by sharing our stories and providing support. Many times, the adoptee's voice is silenced. Here is the opportunity to join other adoptees and let our voices be heard.

What is a safe space?
A “safe space” is defined as, “a place or environment in which a person or category of people can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional or physical harm” (Oxford Dictionary).

At OurHistory, a “safe space” is a place for adult adoptees to gather—regardless of adoption background (domestic, international, foster care, etc.) and outside of an adoption agency—to discuss our stories, experiences, and journeys as adoptees. The experts of the adoptee experience are adoptees. Who better to provide support and a safe place?

OurHistory is a place to provide support—by adoptees, for adoptees.
