Angela Tucker is a nationally-recognized thought-leader on transracial adoption and is an advocate for adoptee rights. The Adopted Life began as a personal blog that allowed Angela to process publicly her emotions and experience as a transracial adoptee; a means by which she hoped to build a community of other adoptees growing up in closed adoptions. Angela’s work has catapulted her into her becoming a sought-after keynote speaker for adoption and child welfare-based organizations. Find Angela’s publications, here.

The Adopted Life Episodes feature 1-on-1 conversations between Angela and transracially adopted teens. They discuss race, culture and birth parent relationships. This series elevates and normalizes the adoptee voice.
