We are overjoyed to be welcoming Angela Tucker, a nationally recognized leader on transracial adoption and advocate for adoptee rights, as our guest speaker for our upcoming Uniting Hearts, Creating Families fundraising gala on November 9, 2018.
In 2013, at the age of 26, Angela’s own story of adoption and search for her birth parents was featured in the groundbreaking documentary, CLOSURE. The Adopted Life (www.theadoptedlife.com) began as a personal blog that allowed Angela to process publicly her emotions and experience as a transracial adoptee; a means by which she hoped to build a community of other adoptees growing up in closed adoptions. Since its launch in 2009, The Adopted Life has grown in readership and purview, and is now the name and platform for The Adopted Life mini-series. Angela’s work has catapulted her into her becoming a sought-after keynote speaker for adoption and child welfare-based organizations.
We hope you can join us in welcoming Angela at this event!
