r/Adoption welcomes all members of the adoption triad: adoptive families, birth families, and adoptees.

If you are:

  • considering adopting a child

  • considering surrendering a child

  • searching for your biological family

  • seeking a copy of your original birth certificate

  • involved in access-to-records activism

  • struggling with issues related to being a transracial or transnational adoptee

  • affected by any adoption-related issue

...r/Adoption is a great place to share news stories, self-posts, and support.

r/Adoption Guidelines:

  • Fundraising posts are permitted ONLY for adoption- and foster-care-related causes. Fundraisers for individuals will be deleted.

  • Consider reddit's policy on posting personal information when posting about seeking your biological family.

  • URL shorteners are forbidden.

  • Please no links to spammy websites.

  • Please do not post profiles for potential adoptive parents or solicit children from parents who are considering placing. There is a special sub for profiles, /r/ParentProfiles.

  • While we accept blog posts, they do not tend to generate discussion here so in general we discourage them. If you feel strongly that a blog post will be particularly interesting to the community, please create a new text post with either the blog text or a summary explaining why it's worthwhile and a link to the blog. Blog posts that do not follow these guidelines will be removed.

  • This community welcomes all points of view. Personal attacks and abusive language will be removed and the offending users may be banned.
