I’m Janine, the compiler of the rEvolutionary Orphan Collective.

This is where I will post commentary inspired by 20 years of research on the adoption industry. My twin sister also created a private forum for individuals and long lost family members to be able to validate your experience and partner with you for progress working towards social equality.  This is venue that gives a broader and deeper discussion regarding current adoption issues. Sometimes, it’s not fun to know about all sides of adoption, but it is empowering!


Ever spoke truthfully about adoption only to be stigmatized as “negative,” “ungrateful,” or even “mentally unstable”?  You are not alone in this.  Be validated here.

"The admittedly concise collection of short articles compiled by Janine Myung Ja in the booklet Adoptees: We Are Not Who They Think We Are, while meant to introduce readers to the often-volatile subject of Adoptee Rights, actually delivers a huge and revealing punch way beyond its modestly stated agenda of presenting the alternative point-of-view to the more commonly accepted wisdom stated by professional adoptive institutions. The author is an active, compassionate voice for adoptees in general, asserting their basic and essential human rights - especially the right to be heard. One such revealing counterpoint of view: "Wisdom gained from experiences like hers provide evidence that poverty-stricken children do not have to be taken out of their dire situation, or nation of birth, to be happy."
Including personal background information as well as story excerpts from other interested parties, Janine Myung Ja does not resort to angry diatribe in Adoptees. Rather, she presents a compelling, rational, highly-researched foundation for advocating an evolutionary appraisal of the adoption world, followed by an equal inclusion of adoptee voices in creating positive change in the system...  Prepare to have your comfortable preconceptions challenged. Plan to be grateful for these highly illustrative writings of Janine Myung Ja."
