For those people who want to shut us down, tell adoptees how to feel and what to think and how to behave, please, please listen to what adopted people say. Validate our feelings, our experiences.
We don’t have to “be grateful.”
We’re not “angry and bitter” when we speak our truths.

Minding Hearts is building advocacy and peer support groups, “Hearts and Minds” in each state. The groups are created to raise awareness, educate, and advocate for those that might not otherwise be heard. We are here for encouragement, education, and support. We cannot give legal advice, but we can try and direct you in the right direction with your case. Links to legal services are listed with their states. Please share and let’s grow our groups. We are here to support families and develop resources that maintain family integrity. We look forward to your support. If you would rather become active by donating, then visit the donation page. Thank you.
