Also-Known-As , Inc. was started by a group of adult adoptees and friends who recognized the invaluable resource of their adoption experience to future generations of adoptees and adopting families.

Established in May of 1996, Also-Known-As, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We seek to serve international adoptees throughout their adoption life journeys by providing supportive post-adoption services.

The mission of Also-Known-As, Inc. is to empower the voice of adult international adoptees, build cultural bridges, transform perceptions of race, and acknowledge the loss of the birth country, culture, language and biological family experienced by international adoptees.
