About the Adoption Summit... is the world's most-visited adoption site. And for the very first time, we are producing Adoption Summit--a free, online adoption conference. Our mission is to give a platform to adoption experts and leaders to share their insights with members of the adoption community. Whether you are an adoptee or birth parent searching for your biological family, a hopeful adoptive parent just getting into the world of adoption, an adoption professional, or expectant mother who has a lot of questions regarding the adoption process, we're here to help each and every one of you. 

That's why we created the Adoption Summit. 

We have gathered a group of leading experts who know adoption. They know what to look for in selecting an adoption agency, how to find your birth family through DNA testing, how to use search angels, the secrets of completing the home study, how to connect with your adopted child, how to finance your adoption, and much, much more. 

We know that for most members of the adoption community, it would be impossible to drive to a specific location to attend this summit if it wasn't online. For a physical event, you might spend many hundreds of dollars on travel, housing, and food. So we decided to create a virtual adoption summit to help you have more convenient access to learn from leading adoption experts. 

Welcome to the Adoption Summit
