Adoption/Searching Online Groups

A few weeks ago, I decided to restart my birth parent search that came to an almost immediate halt in China in 2015 (read about it here). I realize that time is going by – time that I will never get back – and feel confident that I am in an emotionally strong enough place to begin again. I joined a number of search groups on Facebook and on WeChat for more information about searching, templates for language used on search posters, and camaraderie from others who are also going through this complicated process. I have been a part of many adoption groups on Facebook for a long time Below, I’ve shared a list of potentially relevant searching groups or Asian/Chinese groups for Chinese adoptees.
