The Ties Program Korea Journeys
Our story is simple. Before we started The Ties Program, we were everyday people touched by the adoption constellation. Instinct told us international adoptees would be curious about the places where their lives began.The parents who were raising these beautiful children needed a well thought out, supportive way of connecting their children with their birth countries.We were passionate about tackling that topic. And, we dreamed of providing this opportunity to families who had adopted from countries where few, if any, post adoption services were available.
