Oversharing About Adoption on the Internet

I’m looking forward to Thursday’s CHSFS webinarĀ on privacy issues around adopted children’s stories on the Internet. Registration and other details are available here. Please join Aselefech and me (July 18, noon-1pm Central US, 10am Pacific US, 1pm eastern US, 8pm Ethiopia and FInland, 2am Korea.) Don’t see your time zone listed here? Check out a World Time Map. I love maps.


We’ve thought a lot about this topic, my daughter/co-presenter and I. We have finished the PowerPoint, and a couple of slides are included here. Sneak preview. There is so much to talk about and think about. It’s going to be a lively conversation.

It’s complicated, but some things seem clear.

If you are not able to join us, CHSFS will have the recorded webinar available. I wrote about the webinar previously here.

I plan to write further about the subject as well, because there are volumes to say about what, how much, and with whom adoptive parents should share information on the Internet–especially if the information belongs to an adopted child, who grows up to be an adult.
