Adoption Resource Associates

What do you want your family to be?

Adoption is a time of possibility – An opportunity to re-examine your past, and accept who you are today. It offers the chance to break with the genetic vessel and redefine the family, your family.

“The process of adopting a child takes more courage than you think you have, offers more self-knowledge than you think you want, and reassembles your characteristics into someone familiar but changed. It is an incredible journey through a rich landscape of hard truths.”

– Jana Wolff, Secret Thoughts of an Adoptive Mother
