For adoptive families, social media and the Internet present new ways to connect, share support and build relationships with birth families, adoptees, and other adopters. However social media contact can also raise difficult issues and potential problems.
I’m an adoptive parent. I’m also a research nerd by training and inclination, and so I’ve searched libraries, databases and the web for the latest research and information that’s relevant to my adoptive family’s concerns about their online privacy and managing their social media contact.
Adoption Social Media Info distills the information I’ve found into concise, practical articles on a variety of topics relating to adoption and social media. I hope the information may help you make informed choices for your family alongside the advice of your adoption professional or therapist.
I’m not a social worker or adoption professional. No information found on this website or blog should be relied or acted upon by you without first consulting your own adoption professional. Reliance upon any information provided on the Adoption Social Media Info website is solely at your own risk.
There is no substitute for the relationship between an adoption professional and an adoptive family. See your social worker, therapist or other qualified adoption professional regarding any questions you have about social media in relation to privacy or contact for you or your family.
