Open Adoption Magazine: The Heart of IAC

Open Adoption MagazineGet ready for the new issue of Open Adoption! This fall, you will laugh, cry and get all warm and fuzzy inside as you watch three IAC families pursue their dreams through open adoption.

Next, Open Adoption stems from love, grows with love and thrives with love. At the root of this beautiful tree are the strong and selfless women who place their children for adoption. It is because birthparents are at the heart of adoption, that we wanted to create something for them. So, IAC announces our private social networking website just for birthparents. Be on the look out for updates from IAC’s iheartadoption blog.

Also learn about one of the IAC’s very own, Caitlin Mueller, who is not only working to transform lives here at the IAC, but will be joining in the fight against HIV and AIDs by biking 545 miles up the California coast. If you would like to support Caitlin, visit:

Last, but surely not least, read along as our experts discuss two very pertinent issues in open adoption. IAC’s Associate Executive Director and Clinical Director, Kathleen Silber, MSW, LCSW recommends welcoming openness into a closed or semi-open adoption and how to go about it. Lawrence Siegel, JD talks about the role of birthfathers in the adoption process and how to track down a birthfather in California who is MIA to discuss with him his options.

    Meryl and Jonathan. I can't believe how big your son is! He was just a little baby when I saw him at the picnic two years ago. He was and is adorable.
