Adoptee Circles

At Michigan Adoptee Collaborative, we strive to improve outcomes for adoptees by providing advocacy, education and support with the adoption community. Creating a safe place where adoptees can meet for support has been essential in our mission at MAC.

We are proud to announce that we are building a state-wide program, Adoptee Circles, where adult adoptees are invited to come together to speak openly about the lifelong journey of adoption. We create a supportive environment to promote healing and individual growth through a sense of community.
