  • Who We Are

    AIS-CTC is an all-volunteer collaboration of adult adoptees, parents by birth and adoption, supportive family and friends, and counselors and professionals. You're invited to join the conversation. For more details, explore the "Check Out Our DNA" section on this page.  
  • What We Provide - Free!

    Welcoming community. Search tips and assistance. Emotional support and insight.  Post-reunion guidance.  Legislative advocacy.  Education. Humor. Refuge. Hugs or high-fives upon request.
  • Why We Do It

    Adoptees deserve equal rights to birth identity. Heritage, story and genes matter.  A lot. Parents never forget and need a voice, support and compassionate closure.   Relinquishment and adoption should be done in an ethical and transparent manner.  
  • Recent Law Changes!

    AIS-CTC actively supported the unanimous passage of four bills focused on access to records for adult adoptees and birth parents in 2014 and 2015. Thank you, Colorado General Assembly! To learn more about the new laws,  click on the COAccess 2014 icon below.
