Stork and Cradle

The mission of Also-Known-As, Inc. is to empower the voice of adult international adoptees, build cultural bridges, transform perceptions of race, and acknowledge the loss of the birth country, culture, language and biological family experienced by international adoptees.

Adoption Forums


Join a group of adult adoptees (18+) for discussions that address a variety of adoption related issues. All adult adoptees are invited to listen and participate in a safe and supportive environment.

Each event will feature a topic. An adoption related article will be distributed at the beginning of the event to stimulate conversation.
