The experience of being an adoptee is incredibly unique. Adult adoptees can face challenges, questions, and difficulties that other adults may not be able to identify with. Having the support of a community with similar experiences can be incredibly healing and rewarding for adoptees.
Since the beginning of the Internet, adult adoptees have created support networks online on various platforms like Yahoo Groups, forums, and external websites. Now, however, many of the active adoptee support groups online exist in Facebook as private, closed, or public groups. Here is a list of Facebook groups for adult adoptees that are currently active. Most of these groups are closed, meaning you can’t see what’s being posted in them unless you join the group, though you can see who is in the group. For public groups, all content can be viewed by anyone. And for secret groups, no one knows it exists unless they’re invited to join the group.
