We at NACAC believe in the power of expressing your lived experience as an advocacy and support tool. We encourage adoptees and young people who are or who have been in foster care to share their stories to make a difference in the lives of others. We also embrace the diversity of ways people can share their experiences, including written stories or op-eds, speeches or other oral testimonials, artwork, songs, dance, and more.

As you prepare to tell your story, we suggest you explore the rest of the youth advocacy section of our site, particularly the resources on strategic sharing.

In this section of our site, we invite you to view ways young people have shared their experiences with others:
