Sharon’s Story: AKA's Impact on My Adoption Journey
"First, I have to say, I found AKA by some universal, small world sort of happenstance! I couldn’t have met the volunteers at AKA had I not shared my story (at that time I didn’t know it was just the beginning). AKA directed me toward the tools I would need to start writing the next chapters of my life. Marci invited me to become a part of AKA and shared her story. In the following weeks she invited me to the AKA conference. Here I had the opportunity, for the first time in my life, to hear adoptees speak out in an open, welcoming forum. I felt like I got to mingle with a family I had never known. And, three days after the conference, I got to do it again. I met my birth Mom and her two children, my half sister and brother for the very first time! I can never really express how thankful I am for AKA and their kind ways and insights. They promise to do their very best as a non-profit organization to support every part of the adoption triangle. “Grateful” doesn’t begin to express how I feel. Thank you.” -Sharon Frech, adopted person in reunion
