Lindsey Seegers

“Thank you so much for highlighting this important, rarely discussed, topic! It was a particularly timely read for me. I am speaking on birth family reunions on a panel for the Barker Foundation’s 20th Adoption conference in Rockville tomorrow. Adoption and reunion are more complex than Hollywood ever makes them out to be—and rarely have such happy or clear-cut resolutions. This is new website is a wonderful resource I was excited to discover, and now plan to pass onto my fellow adoptees.”
