American Adoptions founder Ted Mars shares his adoption story. With great love he opens up about his life experience as an adoptee. “Because of adoption, my life was filled with love and opportunity,” Ted states. Now, celebrating their 25th year, American Adoptions offers the same hope, love, and opportunity that Ted experienced to many others. “Your wish is also ours,” is one of American Adoptions’ mottos. They know that for some, adoption means offering a life of stability and choices. “It means living out the American dream.” Many of the adoption triad, including birth mothers who make the difficult choice of placing, feel like Ted does: Adoption is a gift to all involved.
