The Theology of Adoption Working Group (part of The United Church of Canada's Theology and Inter-Church Inter-Faith Committee, which I chair) is seeking stories about adoption and forming families of choice. If you have been affected by adoption as an adoptee, parent, grandparent, family member, and/or in some other way, we invite you to tell your story.
We recognize that these experiences may be positive, negative, or mixed. You are welcome to respond by submitting a story (spoken or written), video, photograph, piece of art or music, and/or other forms of expression.
Your stories will inform the work of expressing a theology of adoption for the United Church. We will seek your permission before sharing your stories in a widely distributed format. Any features that could personally identify those involved will be changed.
Responses will be received until July 15, 2016. Responses may be sent to:
