About This site

Proud to call you my cousin

 This site is about adoption in South Africa. Our story, your story or maybe someone you know's story.

In our experience when you adopt and more especially trans-racially your child becomes a child of the universe. Strangers come up to you and ask you things that they never would if you weren't an adopted child or the parent of an adopted child. For some people this is difficult to handle and accept, for us we see it as a way of sharing our experience, our joy, our heartache.

With adoption the rules have really changed over the years and this website aims to share information and different stories from different people about what it means to them.

When you adopt your family tree becomes a mix of all sorts of people - thus the name Adoptree.

I invite you to share your stories/opinions and useful information with us. You can email me on
