Adoption stories discussed at Lifetree Cafe

Difficult adoption decisions and the search for birth parents will be discussed at noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe.

The program, titled “Finding the Family I Never Knew,” features filmed interviews with two women, one who searched for and connected with her birth mother and one who, after 35 years, still searches for the child she placed for adoption.

“I made the decision that there were people out there who could really love this child,” says the mother who placed her child for adoption. “I did it so that he could have an amazing childhood because he deserved it.”

During the program, Lifetree participants will have the opportunity to discuss their own personal connections to adoption.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Cafe is located at Cana, 18 S. Third St.
