What We Do


In one way or another, we are all touched by adoption. And regardless of what role we play or the resources we’ve been given, each of us deserves a healthy life-long adoption experience.

While the practice of adoption has evolved over generations, the needs of the entire adoption community have gone largely unrecognized. Adoption Mosaic’s innovative vision and offerings are designed to address the unique needs of the adoption community, and to create a healthy, positive experience for everyone involved.

Our Vision
A healthy lifelong adoption experience.

Our Mission
The Adoption Mosaic mission is to connect, honor and serve the adoption community through innovative education, practices and support services.

Our Principles

  • We serve all members of the adoption constellation. This includes adoptees, adoptive parents, birth parents, extended family and friends, adoption professionals, and other members of our community.
  • We are committed to working collaboratively with individuals, organizations and agencies.
  • Adoption Mosaic is not an adoption agency, nor are we associated with any agency. We do not make recommendations about agencies or specific types of adoptions.
  • We are dedicated to finding creative and new ways to support the adoption community and to raise awareness about adoption issues.
