Threads of Connection

Threads of Connection is about the content of letters and their potential for relationship building between both families. When children are adopted, they are connected to two families. Letter exchange can help build relationships, so that children and their families understand their history, their identity, and their story. It is a voluntary agreement between two families to stay in touch in the interest of the children involved, so that everyone can stay up to date. It can lessen some of the anxieties, not all, that can arise around adoption.
Threads of Connection encourages birth parents and adoptive families to write letters to each other, based on mutual respect and empathy. All the children are different, as are their families. Rather than offering templates, these four threads can help both families to weave their own unique connections.
