About Us | Adoption.com

"Adoption.com is about bringing together the adoption community and giving them a place where they can have a voice." — Nathan Gwilliam, CEO of Adoption.com

Adoption.com started in a college computer lab in February 1997 and has been serving the adoption community for more than 20 years. During that time, Adoption.com has grown to be the world’s most-used adoption site, the largest online adoption community, the most successful indpendent adoption profiles site, the largest adoption reunion registry, the largest adoption social media following, and the most-read publisher of adoption articles, videos and other content. However, what brings us the most joy is being a part of the adoption journey of thousands of successful adoptive families, and thousands of reunited adoptees and birthparents. It’s kind of like living in a Hallmark movie. Thank you for letting us be part of your amazing adoption journeys.

Adoption.com is the platform for the adoption community. We invite you to join us, share your story and voice in the Adoption.com Community, and help us change the world through adoption.
