let’s make history together
Even though moving a child overseas for adoption placement can temporarily replace the child’s birth family and culture, many of these individuals have voiced a void caused by this migration outside of their original community, and several within the adult adoptee community today have articulated, something is missing.
Stories from adoptees have been neglected and abandoned by the very industry that professes to work for the “best interest of children,” “child protection,” and for families. For many years, adopted people have just dealt with such matters alone, not knowing that all of us—as a community—have a great deal in common.

We recognize that the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons is a component of human trafficking.
We recognize that the threat or use of force, coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of or vulnerability, or giving (or receiving) payments or benefits to a person in control of the victim to be a component of human trafficking.
We ask that the authorities acknowledge that the exploitation of intercountry adoption places additional burdens on trafficked victims—additional burdens that no other trafficked victims are forced to contend with.

the community cares
The rEvolutionary “Adoptee” Collective gives insight into adoption from the inside out. This compilation gives readers a wider and deeper understanding at adoption and from all angles starting from Janine’s very personal look, to global perspectives from fellow domestic, transnational and intercountry adoptees, to historical perspectives, and even offers insight into how communities, unwed mothers, and families left behind were first exploited. These are perspectives the industry lobbyists and special interest groups have stigmatized, ignored and even bullied for decades. Be the first to know how the child market was initiated and protect yourself, your family and your community. Before advocating for adoption, empower yourself with information. Get the collection of books and walk in awareness. Knowledge is Power.
