My name is Kerri and I live in rural Sask with my husband and two small children. I was born in 1981 and relinquished at birth. I spent some time in NICU and foster care before being adopted at 6 weeks old. I decided to look for information on my birth family after the birth of my son due to medical concerns. I met my biological family in 2017 and have been navigating reunion ever since.
The Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan provides pre- and post-adoption support services, including consultation, education, resources and more. ASCS provides these supports and programs to adoptive families, adoptees, birth parents, birth families and professionals. When adoption becomes the plan for a child, ASCS believes the child’s best interests are met when families are well-equipped with a broad understanding of adoption and the issues that may arise along the journey. Knowing what resources are available to support the child throughout their life within an adoptive family is essential from the start.
