Last month I joined with Jane Eales and Margaret Watson to discuss our experience of writing about adoption. Jane subsequently wrote a piece for Ipsify – an online journal for adoptees and others affected by adoption. Jane (Secrets Spies and Spotted Dogs) and Margaret (Surviving Secrets) are both late discovery adoptees with unique stories to tell of their search for identity. The evening was hosted by the Post Adoption Resource Centre (PARC), who, together with Post Adoption Support Queensland (PASQ) provide information, counselling and support to people affected by adoption in NSW, the ACT and QLD. They work with people who have been adopted, parents, siblings and partners.
