IAC Launches Open Portrait for Adoption Awareness

The Independent Adoption Center (IAC) is excited to launch Open Portrait, a Tumblr blog celebrating lives touched by open adoption.

This idea formed when we asked our Facebook fans to post pictures of their favorite captured moments of their children. The photos were heart warming and seeing them in succession painted a wonderful portrait of open adoption.

We want to continue painting this portrait by allowing everyone (birthparents, adoptive parents, adoptees, family & friends) to share memories made possible through open adoption. We’ve also created an events calendar with this year’s celebrations across the U.S. for Adoption Awareness Month.

Starting November 1st, we invite you to visit Open Portrait and contribute an image, a video, a quote, a keepsake of any kind that helps paint the portrait of open adoption.
Open Portrait is a great new way for the open adoption community to come together and spread awareness. You can get involved by:

  • Checking us out! Visit Open Portrait frequently and see what people are posting.
  • Sharing! Post photos, videos, and quotes from your own open adoption.
  • Spreading the word! Post links to Open Portrait on your Facebook, blogs and other websites.
  • Tweet! Tweet! Tweet! Link to Open Portrait with the hashtag #openportrait.

If you have questions please don’t hesitate to contact Amalia: agratteri@adoptionhelp.org

  • This is so great. Take a moment to check it out. You will not regret it. The photos are SO beautiful.

  • As an adoptive Mom, I find it encouraging that this organization is trying to overcome the “secretiveness” that sometimes surrounds adoptions.
