Welcome to The Adopted Life

Adoption is a often a time of great joy for adoptive parents, whilst a time of deep grief for birth parents. Adoptees are wedged between that grief and joyIt is my goal to create platforms for adoptees to share their nuanced narratives.

~Angela Tucker


As a fellow transracial adoptee, I was highly impacted Angela Tucker’s film “Closure.” I have since been able to meet her and see her speak. She is a powerful and much-needed voice for this generation!

As a social work educator, research and professional, I think everyone working with individuals and families that have foster or adoption experiences get to know Angela and her work. Closure is a film that should be required viewing for every adoption worker and every adoption agency.

Angela epitomizes brilliance and beauty. She is a leading voice in adoption and for the younger generation.
