Share Your Story
Travel is a fact of life for every adoptive family. Whether the trip is made within the U.S. or abroad, we travel to adopt, and, often, we later return to our child's place of birth. Tell us about the journeys that took you 5,000--or five--miles away. And, if you're in the waiting stage, please tell us how you're preparing to travel!
