Welcome to The Open Adoption Project! Our key focus is to improve adoptee experiences by encouraging open communication between all members of the adoption triad, nurturing ongoing open adoption relationships, and promoting ethical adoption practices.

Coming soon! We are hosting a special series on the podcast to illustrate the process of finding biological family members using DNA research. Devanie Roberts, an adoptee who found her biological father using this specific branch of research, will share tips and walk listeners through the process of using data from Ancestry DNA kits to find close biological family members, whether that is ultimately identifying birth parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins or grandparents.
