30 Adoption Portraits in 30 Days

The Huffington Post has embarked upon a great feature entitled “30 adoption portraits in 30 days” which was “designed to give a voice to people with widely varying experiences, including birth parents, adoptees, adoptive parents, foster parents, waiting adoptive parents and others touched by adoption.” The power of this piece is that it touches all sides of a complicated issue. Because of the heavy emotions involved, it is too easy for participants in adoption to forget about the other perspectives and experiences and only focus on their own.

Check out the piece and let me know what you think.
