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. Welcome to The Adopted Life

~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, researcher and professional, I think everyone working with individuals and families that have foster or adoption experiences should 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.
