Due to the high volume of emails I receive each day, I am unable to respond to every message I receive. I do read every message sent to me and your thoughts are important to me, even if I am unable to reply. To keep a healthy work/life/activism balance, please note that I cannot give parenting or mental health advice through blog correspondence, and cannot provide legal advice.
Researchers and Students
For requests for The Declassified Adoptee to share research surveys, please note that I may opt to share the surveys to groups and other contacts privately through email rather than on my social media pages. Researching adoption is important. However, as I receive a high volume of these requests I cannot post them all and keep a balance with other content more central to The Declassified Adoptee theme and mission.
I encourage all adults who were adopted and fostered as children who would like to submit guest content to contact Lost Daughters. On rare occasions, I will feature guest content here but require those authors to have some personal or professional connection to adoption to do so.
I look forward to hearing from you.
