What is CORE of Adoption?

CORE of Adoption, LLC is a coaching service specifically for adoptive teens and young adults that addresses and works through the 7 Core Issues of Adoption (loss, rejection, guilt, identity, grief, intimacy, and control) all within a safe space with a fellow adoptee of shared lived experience.

Let's walk this journey together.

What I Believe

I believe that we were made to be in relationship with others.

We were created with the desire to love and to be loved. I believe that our need for attachment affirms the living Gospel of the Word, because the only way to heal a broken relationship is through relationship.


From the adoptee perspective, the way to heal a ruptured attachment between a child and birth parent is through an affirming relationship between another nurturing figure. Similarly, the only way to heal our broken relationship with God our Father is through another life-giving relationship -- a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. What motivates CORE of Adoption is the belief that we were all created for a deep connection with Jesus and in turn with others.
