The Adult Adoptee Network is a private group for Adult Adoptees ONLY, who want to network, learn, grow and become empowered. It’s a safe space to share your journey and experiences of adoption. Although all of our journeys are unique we are all connected through adoption.
The Adult Adoptee Network is co-facilitated by Sheilagh O’Sullivan and Judith Craig Morency both adoptees with personal and professional experience in the field. Individually Sheilagh and Judith both saw a need for a group for adult adoptees within Ontario and joined forces to develop AAN (Adult Adoptee Network).
Sheilagh O’Sullivan; as a Registered Psychotherapist and Adoptee my work focusses on Loss and Transition. I divide my working time between Hospice Georgian Triangle as a member of the Integrated CareTeam and my private practice. In addition to providing direct support to clients, I present and consult to local organizations on the topics of Adoption, Compassion Fatigue, and Grief.
Judith Craig Morency; I’m a Registered Social Worker and transracial, transnational, foundling Adoptee from Haiti, adopted into a white Canadian family. I always had a burning desire to know more about my roots and wanted to find my birth family. I returned to Haiti in 2007 and embarked on this incredible life-changing journey, which I documented in the film Adopted ID. I have just found my paternal birth family and am loving developing these new relationships.
We will be having meet ups throughout the year and encourage everyone to attend as meeting in person is a great way to connect and develop relationships. Meet ups are currently based in Ontario.
