Here’s Why They Work for Adoptees and Their Families
IT STARTS WITH A DREAM
Maybe you’ve dreamed about a heritage journey for years, or perhaps have recently begun thinking about it. We are available to answer your questions, discuss your dream, and provide information for you to consider as the dream takes shape.
IT CONTINUES AS A PLAN
Adoptive Family Travel works with adoptees and their families to design trips that visit the sites, and provide opportunities for unique, authentic experiences. Families often connect with people and places important to them like orphanages, birth hospitals, places of finding, foster homes, caregivers & birth family.
IT IS A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
Adoptees and their families often tell us they feel like the trip was planned “just for their family” even when traveling with one of our Flagship Ties or Ties Lite groups. That is our goal for each and every traveler on this journey of identity.
WE’RE DETAILED & FLEXIBLE
You can relax and focus on the amazing experiences and emotions this trip brings. You can trust us to be on top of all the details! Plus, we’ll build in free time as well as flexibility so you can do the things YOU want to do without worry.
STRONG SUPPORT 24/7
Our full team of adoption specialists will be at your disposal including a logistical genius, our in-country team, and English-speaking local guides and translators. We offer optional Connect & Chat for adoptees and Talk Time for parents and spouses. Ties offers the most supportive way to experience your birth country.
YOU’LL CREATE COMMUNITY
It is impossible to overstate the importance of adoptees traveling with other adoptees,
or families traveling with other families. It provides community, resources, friendships, and STRONG bonds through shared experience.
THE IMPACT WILL LAST A LIFETIME
We’ve done adoptive family heritage journeys for almost 30 years now. Nearly every day, we hear from a Ties alumni adoptee or parent. Many of the adoptees traveled as pre-teens or teens and are now in their 30’s or 40’s or even 50’s. They continually talk about the profound impact of their Ties experience. We couldn’t feel more joy to hear their words.
