Adjunct Travel Staff Each Ties group is also accompanied by a logistical genius and an adoption specialist who is well versed in adoption issues. That person is sometimes an adoption agency social worker from one of the many agencies who work cooperatively with The Ties Program. It may be an adult adoptee, an adoptive parent with training in adoption, or someone who is especially attuned to adoption issues.
