Every November is National Adoption Month, but we at KPCC know adoption affects Southern Californians every day of the year. That's why we are asking, What is your adoption story? Were you adopted? Have you adopted, considered adoption, or placed a child for adoption? How have your experiences shaped your identity?

We read every response, and they all help contribute to KPCC's journalism. Responses are confidential. If you're willing to be public with your responses, though, look for the permission buttons below and click yes.
