Mission

 

We are a volunteer based, peer centered group for adult adoptees from various regions of South America & Extended Latin Americas. Our mission is to provide adoptees with a space for connection, support and encouragement in any step of their journey. We are not a clinical space but a community space.

Our co-creators host monthly zoom calls where we typically cover a wide range of topics, adoptee related and not. Adoptees must be 18 years + to join zoom calls.

To register: fill out our google form located in the ASA + Extended Latin Americas Instagram bio. We also facilitate a private Facebook group and Instagram page where we are able to connect outside of our zoom calls & uplift the voices in our community. Adoptees must be 18 years + to join private Facebook group
