Common Adoption Terminology

AdoptionCanada Listserv: This list is for all Canadians touched by adoption. It's a place for discussion among adoptees, birth parents, adoptive parents, prospective adopters, Canadian adoption advocates, support group members, agencies, adoption councils, provincial coordinators and professionals working in adoption. What does adoption mean to you? How does it impact you? What can we learn from each other? How can we work together to improve the system? This listserv is sponsored by The Adoption Council of Canada:
