Welcome to our section celebrating Adoption Love! Explore stories and videos from adoptees, adoptive families, and birth families, and understand the importance of the Adoption Triad – the three key players involved in every adoption.

Understanding the Adoption Triad

The Adoption triad highlights how adoption involves the interconnectedness of three main parties: the child, the birth family, and the adoptive family. These three parties will forever be linked through the love of a child. The adopted child will always be connected in some capacity to his or her birth family who shares the same genetics, certain characteristics, cultural heritage, and more. The child will also be forever connected with his adoptive family who will be the “forever family” raising him. As there is always an interplay between nature and nurture, the child will usually share characteristics of both his birth family and his adoptive family. Through the child, the birth family and the adoptive family will also be inextricably linked one to another as they have become united by the gift of this child.
